It's clearly a masterpiece and anyone who thinks otherwise should see me after the film
29 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's clearly a masterpiece and anyone who thinks otherwise should see me after the film... sublime comedy deep characterisation; walk-on part for the actual Archbish of C (at that time); real Lambeth Palace Grounds (where Archbish lives); That nice bloke who does the older Vet part; good tramp; pathos; possibly bathos also; something for the space geeks; something for the ham radio geeks; the lead actor looks at bit like the guy in 4 wedding; the Rooskie is excellent. Raises an eyebrow towards the more stereotypically stupid antics of feminists while balancing that off against the sometimes blokish awkwardness of, well, blokes (that's 'guys' for any yank readers) around girls. All in all, the word 'honesty' comes to mind, which is a rare event around my neck of the woods.
