Film could have been better because i feel that they got the casting completely wrong
6 December 2004 | by (london, England) – See all my reviews

To be honest i wasn't impressed with this version of Trevor Griffiths' "Comedians". Having read the play first and then watching the film i had already formed opinions and views on the plot and feel there were little problems with how this was approached; however i was a little disappointed that they didn't show the entire comedic acts in Act 2, it didn't allow you to get the complete feel for how they should be and how the comedians are feeling. The main problem i thought with this version though was the casting. I think that they got Waters and Challenor the wrong way round and that Waters shouldn't have been portrayed as being so posh. I watched the film along with the rest of my a-level English literature class and the opinions about the film were unanimous. Overall, i feel it could have been a very good version of the play and done very well but just with a few minor amendments.
