Quotes

[after repeatedly cocking-up his one and only line, Joe McGill pleads for just one more take]
Joe McGill: Phil! Mr Parish. Sir. Couldn't we give it another go? I've read the whole script. It's a scene of prime importance to the understanding of it.
Phil Parish: Why didn't you get it right, then?
Joe McGill: We've had to do it over and over, all day.
Phil Parish: That's what you're paid for.

Brilliant
16 September 2004 | by jupiter-3840See all my reviews

Brilliant, better than the 1970's TV original version. Superb cast, particularly Tom Courtenay and Bill Nighy. The four way dialogue in the bus regarding a suggestion for a new TV series (twin brothers, Civil Engineers, building a bridge) ("What, no Doctors, policemen, shagging?") was superb, apart from crystallising what the viewing public wants. Whether Jack Rosenthal updated the story for 2003 I do not know but it had class written all over it. Shown on Sky Movies, and will therefore presumably be repeated. Don't miss it, and if it is ever released as a DVD buy or rent it.
