The front sleeve design of the first Derek and Clive album, "Derek and Clive Live", was rendered in scribbled handwriting, not type-written as this film portrays it. See more »

Quotes

Dudley Moore: Quiet, isn't it. Hardly any traffic, and a surprising absence of sarcasm.
Peter Cook: The crows do a nice line in withering irony. I trained them myself. But they lack the wit for true satire. Incessant derision is all they manage, really.

Brilliant study of comic genius
20 December 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Brilliant study of comic genius Peter Cook and his relationship with Dudley Moore.

Hilarious, disturbing and genuinely moving.

The performance from Rhys Ifans is one of the greatest ever given to celluloid and should clean up at the awards. At times it is difficult to remember that I was watching a drama and not a documentary - so credible is Ifans. I have never seen an actor give as convincing a performance where I actually believed I was watching Peter Cook rather than an actor playing him.

Likewise, Aidan McCardle is also very strong as Dudley Moore.

Terry Johnston's script and direction blends light and shade and is always imaginative.

An absolute gem of a movie.
