Still Crazy- Perfect Comedy Drama
Still Crazy follows the fortunes of a 70s rock group that reforms in 1999 to ‘surf the nostalgia wave’ and attempt to bury their acrimonious past and fulfil their previously unrealised potential.
The band are called Strange Fruit and consist of a clichéd bunch of has-beens that are all scarred by their painful, drug addled break up in the late 70’s.
This could have been a bad film or just an average film with its standard formula but it turns out to be a great film and one that I think may achieve cult status as its popularity grows in the slowburning way that ‘Withnail and I’ and ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ did.
The Script is by veterans Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais and, as you would expect from the writers of ‘The Likely Lads’ is faultless. It has great dialogue and great gags and a real warmth and depth.
The cast is also faultless and the acting superb.
Stephen Rea is Tony the keyboard player who, having fallen on hard times sets out to reform the group. He enlists the help of Karen (Juliet Aubrey) who was the young, love struck groupie that looked after the bands damaged talent during their short heyday and decides against her better judgement to go for glory once more.
Together they set out to see the other former members, Les Wicks (Jimmy Nail) the Bass player, Beano (Timothy Spall) the drummer and Ray Simms (Bill Nighy) the lead singer and Hughie the roadie (Billy Connolly) to persuade them to reform the group.
Soon the guys hit the road for stardom and as you would expect the old wounds soon open and the atmosphere of anticipation is replaced by one of resentment and bitterness.

This film brilliantly captures the spirit of the (British) mid 1970s. It charts the return of the Prodrock band "Strange Fruit" with a subplot involving the unknown fate of the missing Peter Greenesque former leader. Superbly acted, scripted and produced, extraordinarily it includes some brilliant in-period new music. Nostalgic, poignant, hilarious. Hitch a ride back to the 70s. Don't miss this astonishing film.

This is one of my all time favourite films. I've bought it and watched many times and never tire of it. The music is amazing! Two tracks (All Over The World and The Flame Still Burns) are worth the price of the DVD in their own right. Incredibly funny, yet on occasions extremely moving.
Whatever you do buy or rent this film. You won't regret it.

Fans of 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' will love this film. Not only does it star Jimmy Nail and Timothy Spall (and Bill Nighy who featured in the most recent series) it was also written by Ian la Frenais and Dick Clement.
The narrative follows 70's rock band 'Strange Fruit' making a comeback after disbanding 20 years previously, on, as you could describe, not the most cordial of terms. The keyboard player, (portrayed by Stephen Rea) comes up with the idea after bumping into the son of the promoter of an old rock festival (during which the band originally parted company) wishing them to perform at such a rock festival once more. After many a trial and tribulation, they eventually manage to make a successful return.
This film makes for very entertaining viewing. It is both humourous, heart warming and accompained by an excellent soundtrack, many songs of which were performed by the actors themselves.
I recommend this film to anyone with a love of British films, British humour and "all that 70's excess".

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Some Bloke on 6 July 2006
Format: DVD
Few comedy films do better than make me cringe at the cliches, but this is one that performs.

It's extremely British in film making style and has an exceptionally strong cast, using Jimmy Nail, Bill Nighy and Timothy Spall to their best. There's plenty of Rock n' Roll cliches about the revival of this 70s glam-rock band, but it's not limited to them; there's sadness, loss and some real sparks about the friendships.

But in the end it is a great comedy, and the characters, storyline and events make it damn good. It does stand up to watching again, and I'm reminded of it when I see 'real' bands go through their revivals.

I was suprised that it wasn't higher profile at the cinema and as it made the step on to DVD/VHS, because this level of quality in the comedy section is woefully scarce.

This film doesn't cheat. It shows a group of tired, older men who have never quite forgotten their glory days as a glam rock group. You see them as they were when they were younger (played by different actors in the flashbacks, of course), and the breakup of the group. One amazing scene shows Ray (Bill Nighy), standing to make a speech at his daughter's wedding. As this hesitant, stammering man tries to make an effective speech, cuts of him when he was younger and beautiful, on stage with the wind blowing in his hair, are interspersed. It really makes you feel the passage of time in this man's life.
Bill Nighy (Ray) and Jimmy Nail (Lez) perform their own vocals, incredibly. That's just one of the surprises in the film. The acting is impeccable, including Diana Rigg's daughter in her film debut as Clare. Bruce Robinson, better known these days as a writer/director, gives what may be the film's best performance - and if you want to know which character he plays, you'll have to see the movie! I watched it over and over before I had to return it.
