Shamefully assembled.
25 February 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In spite of an humourous and interesting summary, Arthur's Dyke failed to sustain either humour or interest for any length of time. There are moments of well-observed comedy, but it looks and feels like an extended Sunday night drama - although overly long and disappointingly shallow.

The film attempts to incorporate too much (neglect, terminal illness, ignorance, regret, homophobia etc) and is tarnished by a pointless cameo from Dennis Waterman. The story is potentially good, but let down in execution because insufficient time and depth is afforded to the key areas of the plot, and the cluttering of other (crassly inserted) issues.

Having said that, it is well shot and occassionally witty, and Quirke's performance is solid. The viewer will, however, gain more from an average episode of 'Down to Earth'.
