Storyline

What About Dick? begins with the birth of a sex toy invented in Shagistan in 1898 by Deepak Rushdie Obi Ben Kingsley, and tells the story of the subsequent decline of the British Empire as seen through the eyes of a Piano. The Piano narrates the tale of Dick; his two cousins: Emma, an emotionally retarded English girl; her kleptomaniac sister Helena and their dipsomaniac Aunt Maggie who all live together in a large, rambling, Edwardian novel. When the Reverend Whoopsie discovers a piano on a beach, a plot is set afoot that can be solved only by a private Dick, the incomprehensible Scottish sleuth Inspector McGuffin who with the aid of Sergeant Ken Russell finally reveals the identity of the Houndsditch Mutilator.

80 minutes of Eric Idle-lead silliness
7 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I only rated this a 6 as it's a bit hit and miss as a story, but if you are a fan of Brit comedy and comic actors, then this is probably worth your time.

full of wacky double-entendres along with nods to Monty Python and the Rocky Horror Picture Show, it's fun to watch all of these talented people have fun with each other.

I have NO idea how they kept from laughing through the whole thing. As much as I love Eddie Izzard, he really just can't do accents and even mocks himself on that account.

Jane Leeves is very funny, I had forgotten just how good she was on Frasier as Daphne.

Poor Billy Connolly has the hardest time of all in keeping a straight face!!!

Overall, worth a good giggle :)
