3.5 out of 10 SIMPLE STORY BUT STILL VERY WATCHABLE MIKE LEIGH
EOIN from Dublin, 03 Apr 2009
I'm with Tim from Cork on this. If you are not a Mike Leigh fan or think that all films should be feelgood with a happy ending, you will be disappointed with this. While the storyline isn't as interesting as in some of his others e.g. Secrets and Lies,Vera Drake,Career Girls-it still delivers in terms of down-to-earth realism which I find much more appealing than the predictable stylised fare which is 90% of current cinema output.

3.5 out of 10 All or Nothing
Tim from Cork, 03 Nov 2008
First off, all the other reviews below obviously didn't know what to expect so don't get this if you're not familiar with the work of Mike Leigh. Now, I was under the impression that this was his most highly acclaimed films but, being a big fan of Vera Drake I would say there's no comparison. It's definately more representative of his style but while that can bring admiration uniqueness it doesn't mean it's a great film.

1 out of 10 Like an omnibus edition of Eastenders
Maggie from Mayo, 13 May 2008
A most depressing film, where everyone is unhappy and no one's life holds any hope. Most of the characters are portrayed as being unable to have successful relationships and intelligent conversations. This is turned around for one family by a significant event. But the hopeful future offered for them seems unlikely in view of the previous events and relationships. Like an omnibus edition of Eastenders!

1.5 out of 10 A bit on the depressing side...
Aisling from Kilkenny, 27 May 2008
I see where that Eastenders reference came from! Watchable drama but pretty slow and without the usual Mike Leigh warmth. Simple tale of the residents of a housing complex whose characters are struggling with poverty, disappointment and desperation of the daily grind. Wouldn't rush to rent this one.

4 out of 10 Depressing, distant, detached, delightful
Robert from Clare, 10 May 2011
I must say I enjoy Mike Leigh's characters and their stories rather than the plot of any movies which tend to be weak. Timothy Spall always good. Enjoyed the show. I would cavaet this by saying I am a big fan of Senor Leigh.

What's it about....
Taking place over the course of a weekend and set amongst the run-down surroundings of a south London housing estate, 'All Or Nothing' paints a vivid portrait of the lives of taxi driver Phil, his dysfunctional family and a selection of their neighbours. Phil's partner Penny works as a supermarket checkout girl and is the mother of their two grossly overweight children, Rachel, a cleaner in a home for the elderly, and unemployed Rory, who spends most of his time on...
