James Corden is Paul Potts

David Frankel’s (The Devil Wears Prada) schmaltzy biopic turns the story of Britain’s Got Talent success Paul Potts into a loser-takes-all heartstring-tugger.

James Corden projects vulnerability as the mobile-phone salesman turned operatic sensation, whose path to an audience with Simon Cowell (one of the film’s producers) takes in a disapproving dad (Colm Meaney), mishaps and a romance with Boots worker Julie-Ann (Alexandra Roach).

Potts does the singing himself, but that doesn’t stop Justin Zackham’s (The Big Wedding) contrived script from sounding bum notes throughout.

      Wow, Mackenzie Crook in another crappy comedy movie, who would've guest. And here's me thinking that it having James Corden would've been a sure sign quality. It's hard to show sarcasm in text.
