Storyline

Mark is a wannabe actor, penniless, clueless, and inept. He cares for a brother who's paraplegic, and he has a girlfriend, Sally, who wants out of the relationship. His idea of life is to go to the occasional audition, dodge his landlord (having spent the rent money Sally gave him), give Sally a hang-dog look, and talk with Pearce, who lives upstairs. Mark's flat is in disrepair: the kitchen window slams shut, bits of plaster fall from the ceiling, a bulb fizzes, and the sitting-room chandelier sways. When an awful accident happens, Mark freezes, which precipitates additional accidents; he finally calls Pearce, perhaps the worst decision possible. Will Mark come to his senses?

Goofs

When the garda (policewoman) calls to the door, some of her walkie talkie chatter can be heard. This is in an American accent which would not be the case in Ireland. The piece heard is in fact a standard foley effect of an American police officer speaking on the radio and is often heard in TV and film. See more »

Movie with them in it or day with them in it is filmed?
17 February 2015 | by halavurtaSee all my reviews

Mark is rejected by one more movie project. Permanent looser Mark is living in a wrecked house which he can't pay for the rent for three months together with his brother in wheel chair. His life is falling apart with his failures at job and problems with his girl friend. Leading role in his friend's movie sounds for him like the solution to everything. The script of Pierce who is an impenitent alcoholic coincides whit what we are watching. We can't be sure if the movie they want to make at this specific day is what we are watching or they are inspired by this day for their movie. After such shrewd start, movie presents 90 minutes laughters to us.

Tragedies one after another don't change Mark's indifferent attitude to life even when he has lost almost everything. Mark's astonishment and Pierce's reactions are main objects of the movie represents British comedy manner. What is happening to them is too much absurd even for a movie according to a movie writer Pierce he says but they again find the solution in a scenario idea.

Everything is fabulously funny in this good sample of British comedy which resembles "Shaun of Dead" and "Hot Fuzz". A Film With Me In It, second movie of Ian Fitzgibbon has various critics like his first job but still it attracts attention in some Festivals include Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA).
