Product Description

Product Description

The film follows the cast in the run-up to and the opening of a disastrous First Night for the Play `Nothing On'. It is full of internal arguments and tensions due to love affairs, heavy drinking and a couple of members being a little past their prime. However, in the theatre, the show must go on.

Although I enjoyed it immensely the first time, this hysterical showbiz farce, gets funnier with each viewing. It is also a good idea to watch it at least once with the subtitles on, since the dialogue is extremely fast paced. The the ensemble cast is delightful. Michael Caine plays the two-timing director with his usual perfection, and Carol Burnett plays the temperamental leading lady with her usual panache. Both John Ritter and Christopher Reeve are very funny, the former as the neurotic leading man and the latter as a dim-witted method actor who has to have his off-stage beat for removing a box of groceries explained to him. Marylu Henner and Nicolette Sheridan are convincing in their supporting roles, as is Denholm Elliott, a has-been actor who hides bottles of whisky in convenient cubby-holes backstage. I especially enjoyed Mark Linn Baker who plays the beleaguered stage manager.

Peter Bogdonovich's direction as well as his actors' split-second timing makes this farce a real treat. Doors open and close, plates of sardines get passed back and forth, props get mislaid, yet everything goes exactly right--until it goes awfully wrong.

And therein lies the fun!

Having seen various stage versions of this farce over the years, including the original West End run, the film makes you realise why it should remain a play - its the 'being there' factor of live theatre that gives it immediacy and magic. Some action also takes place in the auditorium, brushing by the audience itself, so you can really feel the panic and desperation of the characters on stage as they strive to deal with mounting chaos, struggling to maintain face and professionalism, despite ludicrous interuptions to their efforts. The script is sublime, and so finely constructed, (and technically breathtaking), that the play is still going strong in provincial theatres all over the UK today.

If I hadn't seen the stage version, the film may have had more impact, but I felt dissapointed. Obviously, you cannot replicate that theatre experience, despite the excellent cast, Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve, but I was willing to see it. I can't see myself watching it again, so I would say 3 stars out of 5.

I'd never seen this film before, I'd only ever been able to find small clips of this film in order to decide whether or not to make a purchase or not, but as I'm a huge fan of Sir Michael Caine I decided to take a chance.

All of the reviews here say how wonderful this film is, but I prefer to make up my own mind and I have to agree wholeheartedly with everything said here already.

I've never seen a film that has been adapted from the stage so literally before, aside from a few scenes it looks like 80-90% of the film was made in 3 acts, if there are any breaks in those acts then I have no idea where as everything just moves along so smoothly it's hard to believe that you're not actually watching a West End/Broadway play live in you living room.

The performances are fautless, the humour, action, backstage disputes and bickering all fold into one another perfectly.

If you enjoy a farce then I'm sure that the vast majority of people will thoroughly enjoy this gem of a film, it's just a joy to watch.

Sadly this film marks the last screen performance of the wonderful British actor Denholm Elliott who passed away in October 1992 and although he's not given a huge amount to do here his performance is very fitting of an old pro making everthing he does look so simple and effortless.

Very few stage success` make a smooth transition to the big screen. But "Noises Off" excels. With a cast of mouth watering talent, Michael Caine, Carol Burnett and Christopher Reeve to name but a few. Indeed if you know the stage version, the film will not dissappoint and will have you laughing from beginning to end. Ok here`s the basic plot. A group of actors put on a play, and as opening night draws near they are still not ready what with contact lenses, flowers and sardines all adding to the confussion. Tensions rise and trousers drop and things go from bad to worse, but there is a happy ending.....or is there ? One of my favourite films, give it go I`m sure you`ll love too.

I first saw this film over 10 years ago and thought it was hilarious. Ithen saw a stage production, and it had lost none of the humour. When Isaw it had (finally!!) been released on DVD I had to get itimmediately.
In a nutshell, it's about people putting on a play which they hope toeventually take to Broadway, and it's about how BAD they all are, thebackstabbing, and the romance. This is the kind of film where you can'ttake your eyes off the screen for a second, or you'll miss somethingvitally important (who does what to whom, who is in love with who...) Although I'm not a big fan of slapstick, this has made me laugh out loudon many occasions.
The first act is a little slow, but it sets the groundwork for many of thegags that come later on - the sardines, the phone, the boxes and thebags... not to mention the glue and the Arab sheikh. Some of the acting(when they're playing the actors, not when they're playing the actorsplaying the parts) is a little hammy, and Nicolette Sheridan isn't quiteas dizzy a blonde as she should be, but you won't be disappointed withthis.
I got it 2 days ago and I've just watched it for the 2nd time.
