Storyline

The Fitzroy is a live action black comedy set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950s. The world is covered in poisonous gas, and the last place for a traditional seaside holiday is The Fitzroy hotel, an abandoned submarine just off the coast of England. The film centers on Bernard, the hotel's bellboy, cook, maintenance man and general dogsbody, as he faces a constant battle to keep the decaying hotel airtight and afloat. But when he falls in love with a murderous guest, he is thrown into a mad day of lies, backstabbing and chaos. As Bernard struggles to hide her murders from the other guests and suspicious authorities, his world literally begins to sink around him. Written by Andrew Harmer

Mediocre British "Humor"
30 October 2018 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

It is safe to say that the funniest part of this movie is the very last line of the credits. So now you can jump straight to the end and enjoy the best thing in the movie and save yourself all the rest of that time.

This is typical absurdist British surrealist humor. Dark, ridiculous, full of cliche characters that too much mimic real life people all of us know. It is almost enjoyable but not quite. Interesting enough that if you make it to the halfway point you will probably go ahead and watch the rest, sacrificing the remaining time so that investing in the first half of the movie won't be a complete waste.

The Fitzgerald is a surviving, surfaced submarine in a post-apocalyptic world full of poisonous gas. The residents can't boast a functional brain in the lot of them. Viewers will consider this either brilliant or blundering tripe, depending on your point of view. As it's intended, it is presented reasonably well. It could have been better by a great deal. In the end the viewer is left with one big question: "That's it?"
