Storyline

Ben Black is the host of a popular television program that aims to shock and outrage its audience, which continues to tune in even though most of them think they are 'above it.' But Ben's cruel persona as TV host often continues after the cameras are turned off and his ex-lover / current producer, his co-workers, and his lover are often at the receiving end of his barbs.

Great movie, and I'm American!
24 August 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I only mention I'm an American, because this is clearly a movie made with Brits in mind. So, I can tell you I was surprised I liked it so much, and it's obvious there is a bigger cultural difference between the U.S. and the U.K. than I ever thought before. Clunes is a great actor, and he's awesome in this movie. I have liked him ever since I discovered British Men Behaving Badly. The story itself is just odd...very very odd...but it's very entertaining, with a nice mix of comedy and drama. The format of the story is very unusual, from what I have ever seen in the past, atleast. But, as I said, it all works out very nicely. Nicely done all the way around. 8/10
