Product description

Product Description

John Cleese plays a school headmaster obsessed with punctuality whose best laid plans to attend a headmasters' conference go wrong when he boards the wrong train. He turns back to find alternative means of transport, hijacking one of his pupils who is taking the afternoon off school in her father's car. As the journey descends into further chaos, the head begins to lose his schoolmasterly poise.

From Amazon.co.uk

Clockwise is a light-hearted farce that works because John Cleese is so effective as the tightly wound, punctilious headmaster whose well-organised life unravels in a series of disasters on his journey to a conference. Cleese is a master of fussy, fastidious characters in exasperating situations, bottling up his frustration under good manners and sardonic comments until he finally blows, but he’s also startlingly vulnerable as he systematically loses all sense of himself. Dressed in monk’s robes and stranded on a lonely country road, he looks down at his naked wrist and sighs, "I’ve even lost the time". Michael Fryan (the playwright of Noises Off) doesn’t really have much of a story behind the situations, but he provides plenty of complications, and Cleese holds the film together with his brittle manner, single-minded drive, and hilarious headmaster’s condescending haughtiness. While it will seem slight to many, Cleese fans will love it.--Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Has aged considerably since first release and while I am a fan of John Cleese ( the only reason my review was two stars and not one ) this particular film falls flat and fails to promote much laughter. Tends to drag on somewhat ... in my opinion

A brilliant film, watched it several times. It's funny and every minute is gripping. It has a good cast and great characters. Not a single swear word or violence or gore, a good enjoyable old film.

Never fails to make me laugh, even though it is quite old now. The old lady ranting about the sherry glasses, all the funny things that happen to the serious Headmaster (John Cleese) - so funny!

Superb, funny and uplifting. My favourite film. Bought it for a friend who'd never seen it. She was equally delighted.

We originally stumbled across the video of this film and played it to death. The videos and player are long gone but I missed seeing it so I ordered the DVD. Need less to say it's still as funny as ever, and had me laughing loudly more than once. Even on the second showing I am still roaring with delight. I'd rate this above the zoo one which is superior to a Fish Called Wander. The supporting roles are familiar British actors and play their parts magnificently. A real 10:10
