24 Things That Happened In "Angus,Thongs, And Perfect Snogging" That Are Weird Now I'm An Adult

Why bother including "holding hands" on the snogging scale?

Posted on

1. Firstly, what kind of mates does Georgia have that they didn't bother to tell her in advance that they wouldn't be dressing up?

It's 2008, there's texting, someone could have opened their flip phone and sent her a little heads up.

2. Seriously, Georgia’s olive costume is greatly under appreciated, didn’t the kids at their school have any kind of humour or appreciation of good art?

3. And what kind of friend ranks Georgia so low on her looks when everyone else were all given 8s and 9s?

4. The fact that “holding hands” is on the snogging scale. Surely it should only include actual snogging.

5. And surely the school's dress code did not allow Lindsay to walk around like this, how was she not permanently in detention?

6. Also, why did everyone gang up on Georgia about her perfectly normal nose??

And why is Georgia's perfectly normal nose such a recurring topic?

7. Even for non-identical twins, Robbie and Tom don't look related at all.

8. Robbie and Lindsay ended up dating almost immediately after he arrived, how does that even work?

9. The Ace Gang brought binoculars to watch Lindsay undress, and nobody thought it was weird.

10. Georgia wanted her very nice dad to move all the way to New Zealand, just so she'd increase her chances of having her birthday party at a club. This is ruthless.

Having a parent move super-far away seems a high price to pay for a night at Liquid.

11. Also, how did Georgia see through this fringe?

As someone who had this fringe, I can tell you, not very well.

12. When they try to numb their hands to give the *feeling* of someone else holding their boobs.

FYI, this trick doesn’t work, trust me, me and my friends tried it. As an adult I feel like this should be explained to all teenage girls sitting on their hands in their school playground.

13. A kiss lasting over three minutes without breath surely ends up in death, or has to be a world record of some kind.

14. Why did anyone bother to trust Jas with secrets? She was terrible at keeping things to herself.

15. Why the fuck is no one concerned that Georgia’s hair is falling out?!

16. Why was there no adult intervention over the fact that Peter Dyer is holding "snogging lessons" in his room? Where are his parents?

He also chased Georgia around the party trying to kiss her. Peter surely grew up to be a creepy guy on Tinder who insults people when they don't reply to him immediately.

17. None of them seemed concerned about their GCSEs.

18. Jas acts shocked when she finds out Robbie and Georgia kissed, even though she was at the pool too.

19. The whole calling boobs "nunganungas" thing is deeply flawed because they don't even do that when you let go of them.

20. And the use of the word “bazoomas” is so weird, why do none of them just say boobs?

21. Georgia isn’t shown to be super popular but the entirety of Eastbourne seems to have showed up for her birthday party.

22. And it seems like terrible parenting that Georgia was basically rewarded with a party in a club after being harsh to all of her friends.

23. How is Georgia so confident making out with Robbie right in front of her parents?

24. And let's not forget when Jas felt emboldened to put her hands down Lindsay's bra. Imagine how awkward that would have been if she'd skipped the chicken fillets that day.

Though to be fair, none of this weirdness makes the film any less perfect.
