The Importance of Being Earnest is a funny little comedy with good acting and wonderful dialog.
An adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play, the witty dialog, likable characters and hilarious situations are what make this movie such a good experience for the viewer.
Rupert Everett and Colin Firth are wonderful together. Their chemistry is just great. They deliver their lines perfectly and display the spirit of the characters and play in a magnificent way. Firth has a serious look that only adds to the fun and Everett is perfect as the not very trustworthy but seductive Algy.
Reese Witherspoon, beautiful, virginal but wicked, plays Cecily and we cant help but fall in love with her. Dame Judy Dench well what can I say about this Lady. Class, charisma, an acting goddess. Divine work simply put.
TIOBE is a sweet movie. Its romantic, very amusing and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It will make you happy and relaxed.
