After reading Jonny's last post, I've come to the conclusion that he was flaming with Tim Lucas  :-\

Fuck no! It wasn't with Tim! Just a regular member. I must start thinking it through before hitting the 'send' button...

You sound like a right elitist so and so in that first post!  ::)

Definitely. It's a comedy classic, mate.

One of the finest screenplays ever written IMO. And filmed near me to boot, funny as fuck as well as tragic. It made a great impression on me when I was 15 and still does. I really like Robinson's Jennifer 8 and How To Get Ahead In advertising as well, looking forward to his RUM DIARY based on the late great Hunter S Thompsons novel and starring Johnny Depp. " Get In the back of the van!"  :-\

I finally caught this on TCM the other night, I'm sad that it took me this long to see it but...Goddamn! That's a good movie!

I've probably seen this more times than any other film. Has to be one of the most perfectly crafted tragic comedy scripts ever. Richard E Grant should have retired straight after shooting finished - I can't stand him in anything else but he is incredible as Withnail. I used to live next to the Mother Black Cap pub in Westbourne Park - it was very different by then but they still advertised it as the Withnail and I pub.

Can't stand Richard E. Grant in anythign else? I suppose he's an acquired taste. Then again, I happen to think Hudson Hawk is a massively under-appreciated film  :-\
