In the underpopulated Venn diagram intersection between superhero movie and Brit loser comedy sits this half-cooked tale of a Peckham postman with superpowers. Bob (Brett Goldstein. who also co-wrote the screenplay) was hit by a meteor and subsequently developed a skill set that includes laser vision. super strength and the ability to fly. However. the meteor had little effect on his frankly dismal social skills. He may have saved humanity many times over. but he hasn’t had a date in six years. All this might be about to change: it’s Bob’s day off and he has arranged to meet the local librarian – but his Ministry of Defence handler (Catherine Tate) has other ideas. The film shares some thematic similarities with James Gunn’s vigilante nerd picture Super; however. the unfocused. sentimental approach of SuperBob is in stark contrast to the savage edge that made Super such a malicious pleasure. The film’s main asset is Natalia Tena. nicely abrasive as Bob’s cleaner and eventual love interest. Dorris.
