Richard E Grant - king of the Grebs!
19 July 2001 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

Richard E as Mr Greb and Julie Walters - together. Dream combination. A bit of Withnail and I plus Personal Services (1987) blended by experts.

Set in part in Southend, Essex, a look at mummy's boy Mr Greb being "seduced" by boozy Julie Walters as he searches for his long lost Dad. Denholm Elliot plays Julie's boyfriend.

Lovely one-liners such as the bit where Denholm returns drunk to the Hotel they are staying at (long-term) and Julie is annoyed, so shouts "Matty, you will not treat my home like a hotel!" Marvellous.

Any Julie Walters gem.
