"Naughty & crass for all the right reasons, Thornton is one of only a few actors who could pull off this drunken slob who couldn't give a crap, but you still love him. Delicious. You'll chuckle a lot."
"Speaking of unique, Geoffrey Rush is perfectly cast as the flawed, creative genius of Britain's best loved comic. A biopic that is much better than it had any right to be - something of a cult movie."
"David Cronenberg's most accessable film - with spot-on performances from Mortensen, Bello, Harris & especially Williiam Hurt as the kind of evil, sly acquaintance who'd genuinely give you the squids."
"One of the saints smoking a cigarette and discussing life and its nasty ways of hammering you - is just one of the delights in this 7-year old gets sacks of train robbery money gem. Danny Boyle film."
"There's an argument that every movie lover such view 'every' John Sayles movie. Like Woody Allen, he's consistently touching, real, gets to you. It's not quite "Passion Fish", but worth it as always."
"There's cliches in here for sure, the idyllic home, everyone's pretty, but the fab cast and the story take it to something better. Much more touching than you'd expect - liked it so much I bought it!"
"Finney is magnificent as Churchill with all his greatness, statemanship and English eloquence running side-by-side with his pomposity & whining neediness. Redgrave just sublime as his wife. Gorgeous."
"The R1 edition of this TV movie is a 3 disc set (2 more than R2). They have long and insightful documentaries on the mighty Ernest & his enduring British courage. (Strangely washed out print though?)"
"Ryan Phillippe can't get to grips with what's happening in his life/mind - murder, betrayal, girlfriend who's soft one minute, a monster the next. Clever & engaging to the messing-with-your-head end."
