For all the flak it gets regarding a few admittedly odd directorial choices, it's tough not to not have fun with this one. Colin Firth as Jack? Dame Judi Dench as Bracknell? C'maaaan. Wilde's text is so effortlessly enthralling, of course, you really might as well let it do the work. Parker mostly does. "I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train."
What a hillarious film, i love this better than much a do about nothing. My fave quote will be this " I hope cecily i shall not offend you , if i state quite openly and frankly . You seem to me in every way the visible personification of absoulute perfection" Stephen fry said it once and i don't know he's quoting oscar wilde , i should have known because he's wilde in wilde
