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.
Joe McGill: We're not machines. We're not cameras.
Phil Parish: You had *one* line to do, Mr McGill. One! And you couldn't.

Oh deary me :(
24 December 2009 | by Cedric_CatsuitsSee all my reviews

0 out of 10 because this has NO redeeming features at all. There is enough material here for a 3 minute sketch, if you stretch it out. Maybe there was a time when this sort of gentle satire was classed as entertainment, but that time has long since passed on - hallelujah for that.

Repeating the same tired old joke over and over and expecting new laughs is a sure sign of madness. Watch this film all the way through and either you will go mad, or you already are. I guess you can only make lemonade out of lemons, but they ran out of lemons after about 5 minutes and substituted water. Waste water, at that.

Total waste of a decent cast and and 90 minutes of my life. Not going to waste any more of it except to say: don't waste yours on this drivel.
