4.5 Brilliant and moving British comedy. Gamebargains99 | 27/05/2010 | See all Gamebargains99's reviews (59) I had this for a couple of months before I sat down to finally watch it, thinking it wouldn't be that good. How wrong I was! This is a fantastic, funny, keenly observed film about a washed-up Hollywood star, well past his prime, who finds himself deservedly out of work. His agent promises him a Shakespeare 'comeback' in Stratford-Upon-Avon...but when he arrives he discovers it's a different stratford, and the rehearsals and performance will be from a poorly converted barn! Superb acting, great script, and truly one of Burt Reynolds finest ever acting roles. He is sublime in this. A MUST-SEE comedy, that the whole family can enjoy. The last ten minutes or so will have you in tears. This is better than The Full Monty and Four Weddings and a Funeral. Certainly the best British comedy in a long, long time. Loved it!
