5.0 out of 5 stars Nice surprise!
After reading some of the other reviews I thought this movie would be dreadful, and now that I think about it, that predisposed me a little bit to the negative side. However having watched it, I can say I really don't understand those people who didn't like it. Yeah, yeah, it has all the atmosphere and little flaws an independent film tends to have, but even among all...

3.0 out of 5 stars utterly ludicrous but entertaining - esp for dylan admirers
I bought one from ebay & sure, it is utterly ludicrous but entertaining fun nevertheless,
our dylan can actually act as well as performing his trademark woolly childlike stare & sure now everyone seems to be having a fantastic laugh on screen, acting the goat for all they are worth,
the 2 women characters are a bit underused so this is all about the boys,...

3.0 out of 5 stars How do you want me?, 9 Aug. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Actors [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
It all depends how you like your comedy.
If idiotic identity mistakes and hammy acting are what you like, then this is the film for you. Dylan Moran as young actor Tom Quirk far outshines his A-list co-star Michael Caine in his ability to adopt any number of comedy characters and make them all different. His more subtle acting is also excellent; understated and innocent is his way - though it' unusual to see Moran in a romantic lead, he turns what is actually a fairly emotionless script concerned with its linear plot into something quite beautiful.
Chaos and farce are limited devices, and this film does its best with them, giving a few giggles and even the occasional guffaw, but if they're not your bag don't come here!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT, 13 Jan. 2004
This review is from: The Actors [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I really loved this film, it was hilarious. Im a huge fan of Dylan Moran (a rare breed, unfortunately) and found that he was really the best thing in this film, as he has to adopt many disguises during the caper, and he pulls them off fantastically. hes better that Caine. THIS IS THE BEST BRITISH FILM I HAVE SEEN
