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.

I cannot think of a better title than "oh deary me '

The last word of that title is DRIVEL ! Very apt, i do agree. This embarrasing nonsensical tripe was offered to me by a helpless family member in the form of a ticket to view as a birthday present . Talk about misery, if you find enjoyment in that, this is it folks. Roll up roll up see how a so called professional group of FILM MAKERS wow) can lose themselves in self conglaturatory pessimism and endless nonsensical inuendo. Simply put, this is a monumental flop, which to add to the irony, was introduced by herself in person? Yes, you guessed , his patronisingly rude widow ( I R L ) One of the very few films I have ever run from as fast as my legs could whisk me from that venue ? And stragely enough, it really was a little less than 10 minutes in my case until I happily vacated my seat. To cap it all, ticket price was £15 as this was purportedly a charity function ? And somepne who was involved with that charity confided in me, that they would never again volunteer their efforts, for that organisation, was not exactly, shall we say, above board ? No nudging or winking if you please ? If you were there, my sympathies ! Michael...
