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.

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!
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.
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.
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.

The script may follow that of the well-known stage play, but this production is dreadful.
It's a low budget TV movie, made by a big budget film company. Read more
nice play and hope the this film will be just a good with Michael Caine?Published 1 month ago by TAMMYMYDOG
I did enjoy this DVD having seen it on stage. I think the play is more impressive on stage because of all the choreographed in and outs which were dazzling to see in a production... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dizzy
