A very funny film
22 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was one of my favourite films when I was little, but Channel 5 have just put it on after the watershed and that made it even better. I always thought there was a problem with the continuity when she hands him the thing at the end but I was wrong it was terrible censoring.

Back to the film. All the actors are good in the film although Alan Rickman steals the show completely. Even if you don't like mystery films tape the fight scene at the end of this, it is one of the funniest you will ever see.

Just one more thing would somebody get Nick Starkey a cappuccino.
