Not that funny! 3/10
Review: Personally, I didn't find this movie that funny, because it's basically just Ricky Gervais making a complete fool out of himself for an hour and a half, and the reprise of David Brent, from the Office, didn't have the same amusing sketches like the series. This movie see's Brent giving his music career one more go, so he tries to put his previous band, the "Forgone Conclusion", together but they all have personal issues. When he finally puts together another band, they go on the road, financed by Brent, and it all becomes a big embarrassment. His band are just along for the ride, and they don't associate themselves with Brent because they think he's is a complete idiot. After wasting loads of money on his disastrous tour, he goes back to his office job, accepting the fact that his music days are behind him but he is still optimistic about his future, on the road. I did find the ending quite sweet, when he walks off with his work colleague Pauline Gray (Jo Hartley), to get some coffee, and the fact the he had been suffering with depression, did give the movie a meaning but apart from that, it was just a typical Ricky Gervais comedy, which is more silly than funny. Some of the outrageous jokes did push the boundaries, especially the racist ones but on the plus side, the band actually wasn't that bad. I personally can't take that much of Ricky Gervais's comedy, so my expectations for this film wasn't that high, which was why I wasn't totally disappointed with the outcome. Average!

Round-Up: This movie was also written and directed by Ricky Gervais, hence why I didn't find it that funny but after watching the behind the scenes footage, it really seemed fun to make, and there constant laughter on set, was more funnier than the movie itself. Anyway, with the success of the Office, Extras, Life's Too Short and Derek, Ricky Gervais has become an household name around the world but his movie career hasn't really taken off. The Invention of Lying and Cemetery Junction were pretty disappointing, which is why he took some time out from the public eye, so this movie seemed like a safe bet as it was about the much loved character, David Brent. I have to commend him for coming up with these fresh songs and performing them himself but I personally think that the movie would have worked better if the songs were completely awful, which there not. Anyway, I'm sure that the Office die hard fans will love the fact that he has returned to the big screen with David Brent but I personally didn't find it that amusing.

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $5.5million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their music/comedies, starring Ricky Gervais, Rob Jarvis, Abbie Murphy, Jo Hartley, Andrew Brooke and Tom Bennett. 3/10
Lacks That Magic
In my opinion this show isn't as bad as a lot of the reviewers here seem to be making it out to be, but compared to the original Office series I do find it to be at least somewhat of a disappointment. I guess that is to be expected though, as the original series was so good it must be hard to duplicate that success again, especially so many years later.

Ricky Gervais is back as David Brent who now is working as a rep instead of a boss at an office, selling women's hygiene products (which I found to be a rather cheap joke). But he still obviously has his head in the clouds.

I'm not sure it was a good choice to focus the entire special on David's attempt to become a rock star by hiring a band and crew to go on tour with him. The show does have its moments but just lacks that magic it and the character used to have. Also I should point out that this program is definitely tilting more towards the sadness of Brent's life than comedy. I just felt bad for him without laughing or even just feeling that patented "Office awkwardness" most of the time.
Don't listen to the negative reviews--it's hilarious!
I was very excited when I saw Netflix was releasing a David Brent movie, and it did not disappoint. There are at least a dozen big laugh out loud moments in the movie. The songs alone were unbelievably funny. ("...and dwarfs aren't babies. You can't just pick'em up--they got rights! And anyway don't assume you could--they're not light! I learned the hard way.") I must have rewatched that song alone a dozen times. Ricky Gervais is a comedic genius, no doubt about it. I only hope we haven't seen the last of David Brent!
The 'Brentmeister' rides again
Ricky Gervais. Chances are you'll either love him or hate him. And, basically, your enjoyment of his latest film 'David Brent: Life on the Road' will largely depend on whether you're a fan, or find him excruciatingly annoying. Like most people, they 'found' Gervais during his award-winning BBC sitcom 'The Office' where he played the self-proclaimed 'chilled out entertainer' David Brent (or 'boss from hell' as the rest of the world referred to him as). So, if you're a fan of either the character, or the cringe-worthy humour he specialises in.

There's always that worry when a good show which is usually half an hour is suddenly dragged out for a feature length movie's runtime that it's going to dip in places and fall flat in others. I'm pleased to say that 'David Brent: Life on the Road' does not suffer from this (too much). Yes, I loved The Office and have followed Gervais' career ever since, so I was crossing my fingers for the best. This film does deliver. It serves as a 'sequel' to the part of The Office which was about Brent's life. If you watched the series then you'll know about his dreams and aspirations to become more than the manager of a paper merchant in Slough.

'The Office' was a 'mockumentary' about the life of the workers in Slough and now we have follow-up documentary about – arguably – the 'star' of the fictional show 'David Brent.' We meet him now after he's long since left Wernom Hogg and is now a – much ridiculed – sales rep who travels up and down the country peddling his less-than-necessary wares. However, he still dreams of becoming the next big thing in music and, rather than go on X-Factor as most people who share his ideals seem to, has sunk all his life savings into promoting his own musical band.

What we see is a depressing take on humanity's desire for fame without the talent to back it up. Gervais has already (majorly!) touched on these subjects in his other TV show 'Extras,' but we witness a man who is more ambition than talent. He won't accept that he'll never have the fame and fortune he craves and, even when it's staring him in the face, he will adjust his perception of reality to suit the situation. What we get out of it is the knowing that he'll never be what he wants and, despite probably not wanting to associate with a man like this, we can't quite bring ourselves to hate him because we know that he'll never achieve or 'win' the fame and adulation he craves.

'David Brent: Life on the Road' is a good little compendium piece to 'The Office.' I guess it is a little stretched and sometimes it feels like there should be one or two jokes more than there is, but, overall, it stands up on its own. Sometimes there are more heart-wrenching moments than laughs, but they add depth to the film and make it a little deeper than a straight-up comedy.

Many people have moaned that there are no other 'Office' characters in it from the British version, but the new characters we meet along the way should – slightly – make up for that. I'm sure we've met one or two of them in offices up and down the country from time to time.

Not as good as The Office, but, then again, what is? Still solid. Maybe a feature length Extras next?
Not enough laughs or decent supporting characters.
There was a framework of a good story here and a few classic Brent moments, but over all it ended up dragging in too many places, maybe because it lacked the variety that the supporting roles provided in The Office. It all felt a bit one dimensional and through out I felt that maybe it was rushed and could have benefited hugely from the input of additional writers. I get that this is not meant to be another episode of The Office, but maybe it shows that Brent's character isn't strong enough to carry a show alone.

As someone mentioned in another post, Alan Partridge is the obvious comparison to make with Brent, and while this style of English character comedy doesn't really suit the big screen in my opinion, I thought Alpha Papa was a better attempt, for one thing, it at least attempted to be more cinematic than the TV format and evolve Alan's character. There wasn't a single joke or situation in Life On The Road that hadn't already been done similarly or better in The Office. The episode 'Training' in series 1 covered much of the same ground (Free Love Freeway) but had roughly as many laughs in half an hour as Life gets in three-times the length.
Everything I expected
I love Ricky Gervais. LOVE the Office, the podcasts, Extras, the stand up shows. Brilliant. Couldn't watch past Episode 3 of Life's too short or through a whole episode of Derek. Something very obvious when Merchant isn't involved.

I was fearful of this film, I wanted it to be good. I had watched all of the Learn Guitar with David Brent videos on Youtube and even saw the Foregone Conclusion live show at Hammersmith, so I knew a lot of the songs. The songs are well crafted and funny, so it's a perfect formula right?

I feel Gervais tried too hard to go back to the Brent character, it's too tragic, too painful, too much.

He says in all the interviews that it would be odd to have the same characters as in the office, still there after 20 years. But then he DOES have an office and the same characters are there, Finchy, Gareth, Dawn, the love interest (or versions of them)

Don't get me wrong, I did laugh in this film, and it is rewarding, at the end to see the band end up thinking he is 'alright, actually' but it's so contrived. The end to the film feels very rushed. He packs all the classic Gervais things in, the slightly crying heartfelt interview (which he pulled off to perfection in the Extras Christmas special, when he was in Big Brother) but since then he seems to be trying to do that in everything he does.

The film settles into a rhythm once they hit the road, they do a gig in a different location and you see one of the many funny songs performed. There was a scene where he 'picked up' two women after a gig, but he asked them back to his hotel room at a cash point, it all felt over the top desperate, why couldn't he have just me them in the club and then ended up at his hotel room, the jokes that followed would still have worked.

Gervais wanted you to feel sorry for Brent, and he really hammered home this message, this worked in The Office because it was a lot more subtle and over 2 series, in a film, it was very hap-hazard and rushed.

As the title says, this film is everything I expected, unfortunately I didn't expect much after seeing the trailer.

This film COULD have been good!
A nice return to the life of David Brent.
David Brent: Life on the Road is written & directed by Ricky Gervais and stars Ricky Gervais, Jo Hartley, Ben Bailey Smith and Tom Bennett.

A camera crew catches up with 'The Office' star, David Brent, as he pursues his lifelong dream of becoming a rockstar on the road.

Gervais' comedic genius was firmly planted in toe-curlingly awkward situations back in 2001, with two very successful series and specials of The Office. 'Life on the Road' explores Brent's life after the events of the show, and continues to spawn the incredibly hard-to-watch moments that Brent gets himself into. The scenes in the new office are perfectly written and performed, welcoming us back to the situational comedy that was so brilliantly crafted.

Unfortunately, once we leave the office the film slightly degrades into something more average than superior. However, this doesn't mean there aren't more hilarious scenes to follow, it just seems less consistent. I also thought that as the film moved into its final 15 minutes, it seemed like a bit of Derek had made its way into the character of Brent. That said, the heartfelt scenes were satisfying. It's possible that without Merchant's co-writing the screenplay wasn't as great as it could have been, but wishful thinking is something I like to do without.

A lot of the band performances felt a little repetitive after a while, but they did include some funny moments. The music (also written by Gervais) is catchy and fun, adding a new dynamic that we only briefly heard in the original series.

All of the actors involved are extremely convincing and show great chemistry with Brent. I felt that some of the characters were underused, most notably Nigel (played by Tom Bennett), who was surprisingly delightful.

Overall, it was as I expected it to be and I am fairly pleased with how it turned out. It's not as consistently funny or awkward as I'd hoped, but it has a lot of heart. Gervais seems to implement a lot more emotion into his work now that he has gone solo, which is nice to see. Fans of Gervais will like it. Others, not so much.

Verdict; David Brent: Life on the Road is an above-average follow up to the original series and while it does lack at times, it's a pretty enjoyable experience.

David Brent: Life on the Road, 7/10.
Produces the cringe laughs, but leaves the heart to be too little too late
Ricky Gervais will not go to his grave a poor man, even though his work since The Office seems to get weaker as it goes. Perhaps this is why he returns to where he was at his best, and the character that made him famous, but there doesn't seem to be many other reasons why David Brent is back on our screens (and the big screen at that).

From the start, we are reminded of the cringe humor that he is so good at, and there is plenty of that here. When it is at its best it is seamless and comes from a place of truth within the character; too often though it is cringe for the sake of it – perhaps still funny but not rooted in something honest in the way The Office did so very well. This links to a much bigger point, and defines why this film didn't work for me even though it got a few laughs – the heart. In The Office, we did care for Brent and this made the cringe worse because we wanted good for him even as his character hurt himself. This remembered connection helps the film, but is not enough to do all the work, and mostly the film doesn't bring anything else to the table on that front. It is really only the final 15 minutes where suddenly we have an attempt at an emotional core to the film – which is nice on paper, but really too little and too late.

This gives it the constant feeling of being totally in the shadow of his better outing, and this is not helped by the same running through the writing, performances, and general scenario. Some good cringe moments and laughs, but mostly it is an average film which relies too heavily on past glory, and limits itself by leaving anything approaching heart or pathos until the final few scenes.
Don't waste your time ...

Seriously. Don't. Go watch grass grow or paint dry instead. It'll be more interesting.

I can count the number of times I laughed on one hand, and even then it was out of sheer embarrassment than anything else.

Complete and utter waste of time. I feel like I got ripped off, and I saw it for free! Don't waste your time or your money on this film.

I'm going to be telling literally everyone I know not to watch this, something I've never done before because it was just that bad!

Your time would be better spent doing something mundane, like cleaning your house, or tidying up the garden.
David Brent: Life on the Road
It's very rare that a sitcom transforms successfully in to a feature length film but nonetheless, as a a huge fan of The Office, I was looking forward to checking this one out.

The first 20 minutes or so were excellent and felt like one of the original episodes, it was a laugh a minute. Although I was a bit disappointed not to see any of the other original characters, some of the new characters had their moments, in particular the two guys from PhoneShop.

Once the film starts to move on to the road part, it really starts to drag. The road characters were mostly uninteresting, the songs were not funny and in general the laughs were pretty rare & very repetitive.

Gervais transformed back in to Brent seamlessly but overall there just wasn't enough material to warrant a feature length film. I give it a 6/10 overall and in future I will stick to re-watching the original episodes.
