Film critic for the Daily Mail who wanted Crash (the David Cronenberg one) banned. Mark Kermode, who thought that Crash was perfect, wanted the film seen by everyone.

Consequently, there was a bit of a falling out.

Mark has generally maintained a line of insisting that even the worst films (Little Man was specifically questioned about this) should not be banned. However, he did state that while watching Pain & Gain, he finally understood what Tookey must have felt when viewing Crash.

With such history, Kermode and Tookey - critics polarised by history, ideology and newspapers (Mark of course writes for the Observer), could any film bring them together? It turned out, it could - they both loved Enchanted, talking to each other in the gents toilet after the screening and saying, "wasn't that great?"
