My Name Is Joe Review

Okay, so your name is Joe. So what?

Joe turns out to be a recovering alcoholic, and in 28 Days fashion, winds his way to recovery, stopping only for a tepid romance with a lady friend. Then My Name is Joe turns gangsterish, before an abrupt and uninteresting ending -- which might have been redeemed if the film was remotely interesting anywhere along the way.

In Glasgow-English so thick it has to be subtitled, Joe is so self-indulgent and smug that you can't help but hate it.
