Storyline

Lloyd Fellowes is the director of a theatre company. He's desperately trying to get his production together, despite the best efforts of the cast, the crew, and Lady Luck. We follow the production from final rehersals, through opening night, and onto the tour: as with any group of actors forced to work closely together for any great length of time, romances and arguments are bound to break out. Quite often, what's happening on stage is nothing compared to what's happening backstage.... Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Absolutely funny - laughed my soul out :-)
5 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amazing movie - would give it a 10.

Fast paced, never a dull moment - rib tickling funny.

Those who see movies after seeing ratings - Please - this once check this movie out before u see the ratings..........You will never regret it!! Worth every minute of it!!!!!!

Comedy is so difficult to get right - often gets stretched & repetitive in many comedy movies. Not so in this one - Its been timed to perfection & makes it worth the watch & a memorable experience!

The original character & feel of a play has been maintained throughout & carefully woven into a movie & at no point would it disappoint a movie audience who may /may not like plays.........beautiful balance between the "play" & the "movie"!

Do watch it.
