4.0 out of 5 stars Only Cleese could have made this film
The more I watch this film, usually once every couple of months, the more I am convinced that no other actor could have been the lead in this piece of beautifully crafted farce. John Cleese was outstanding from his first line to his last, dominating the whole film, even those scenes where he was not actually in vision, but everything that was happening was ABOUT him and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Clockwise
Though I loved this film when it came out years ago - this time I felt the film was very dated.
The film was slow and had its day.

Ordered a vhs instead of dvd so was not able to watch this. Remember seeing it before and John Cleese was great as the headmaster

Bought on the back of watching fierce creatures. It was OK but not as funny. Good if you want a light hearted movie

3.0 out of 5 stars John Cleese; That's it., 20 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Clockwise [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The script is OK, the slapstick style is alright, but most of the acting is complete pants. John Cleese of course - who is God, and that shall never be disputed - gives a startlingly real performance of a headmaster, and is the only thing that makes this film funny. The complete lack of humour which is shown in his character only serves to make the film more funny, although there are some very small performances that are funny even without God in them (the old women are a good giggle at times, and the plummy-voiced fella from that show with Judy Dench; who has also appeared in "Fawlty Towers" puts on a good show!)
All in all, get the film if you're a Cleese fan. If you're not, don't bother because this film IS Cleese, and nothing else; there is virtually no performance other than that of the comedy great from the Python days and beyond.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scenes from clockwise, 26 Sep 2004

scott charles (England (Grimsby)) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Clockwise [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Would love to know where some of the scenes are set it this funny family comedy as some look very familiar, the scene at the beginning of the film where cleese is in hospital grounds.Then he nearly gets knocked over by a young girl. Also the smashing up of the public telephone box looks familiar.

1.0 out of 5 stars :-(, 22 Dec 2011
This review is from: Clockwise [DVD] (DVD)
Not extremely funny. But perhaps the sense of humour was different those days. If you look for a decent (but slightly twisted) comedy movie - 'what's new pussycat' with P. Sellers would be OK :-)
