Molina is superb
30 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now as far as film making goes this made for TV drama is quite exceptional. Molina is brilliant playing one of Britain's most famous comedians. However, the fans of Tony Hancock should be warned, this film is a portrait of the troubled man behind the legend. I have no idea how close to the truth this films is, but Hancock is not portrayed in a favourable light. This film suggests that Hancock had a drinking problem and that the talent of the famous TV show was in the scripts. These points of view are sure to anger some of Hancock's fans.

We have a TV movie biography of one of Britain's famous funny men. A viewer might expect a light-hearted romp. That is the furthest from the truth. One may not like the approach of the film makers, yet there is no denying that this is a compelling show, well above the average.
