HILARIOUS. The cast is perfect. I want more Alan Tudyk on acid. Actually, put everyone on acid! What could go wrong? Great comedy. Matthew Macfadyen will always be my Mr. Darcy and I love him for that. Yep, I'm a sucker.
Superb dark comedy, simmers in the beginning but once the real comedy begins totally blind-sights you with such outrageous situations. The comedy, although over the top, is handled very lightly with great care and comedic timing by both director and cast.
Very funny dark comedy from director Frank Oz. It gets off to a slow start, light on real laughs with a few too many obvious gags - but once it really gets going, it gels into a hilarious and constantly surprising farce. The cast is excellent (Peter Dinklage is particularly hilarious) as is the buoyant score by Murray Gold.
As a farce it is fast-paced and it do happen a lot of stuff of the whimiscal kind that is expected, but it is not like it happens that much surprising really. The cast though is above average and make the film a lot funnier than the script.
Totally competent comedic flick. There's a few good
performances and interesting moments sprinkled throughout, but other than that I found it quite boring. Nothing special or interesting about the cinematography, sound design or editing. It all just felt really safe, in a bad way, which is weird considering the subject matter.
Most of the verbal comedy falls flat--too predictable and one-dimensional, while some of the physical comedy is good. Story is well set up, but so boringly basic, as the stakes don't seem to matter at all. Most scenes in this film don't work in conjuction with the story, but are only included for one stupid punchline and CUT TO: next joke/irrelevant scene.
