5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, 13 Jan 2007
Not quite as funny as Make Mine Mink, but still painfully hilarious. The scene in the court room was quite extraordinarily funny, and had me in tears and stitches, clutching my heart. There wasn't quite the sustained humour, and perfect pacing that there was in MMM, though. Never mind, it was still infinitely more humorous, witty and amusing than almost anything I've seen made in a film studio in the last 20 years. Terry Thomas was the rotter of all time, a sublime character, the type of would-be gentleman cad who simply doesn't exist in these egalitarian days --- more's the pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 23 Dec 2006
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. This is one of the best and funniest movies I have ever seen. Holly's performance is stupendous, sizzling, superballistic. All the other performances are also brilliant. The script, cutting and direction are all perfect. Don't bother to read any summaries of the story: just grab it for its knockdown UK price, rush home and slot it into your player. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius, 27 Sep 2006
These are two of the greatest books ever written. They are, of course, not nonsense. They may have been written for children, but their appeal to any reasonably perceptive adult is so intense that those who have fallen under their spell can practically recite the entire texts of both. In fact, they constitute profoundly penetrating statements, or summaries, of the human condition: physical in Wonderland, and intellectual in Looking-Glass. They do not ramble. Every word, every incident, has been chosen with the utmost precision. Tenniel's illustrations are inspired perfection, and the result of prolonged and dedicated collaboration between author and artist. They will never be improved upon,… Read more
