Movie Info

Director Ian Fitzgibbon crafts this darkly comic tale, produced and set in Ireland, about a dissolute scriptwriter and a dejected actor who become unwittingly drawn into a labyrinthine mess when several people experience bizarre accidental deaths in their flat. Though the men didn't deliberately cause any of the incidents, they fear that they will be unfairly pegged as murderers if they relay information to the cops, and promptly set about disposing of the corpses in gruesome ways. Meanwhile, as

Things after the halfway point move from the ridiculous to the stupid.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

No amount of sly, beguiling Irish charm can overcome the inherent stupidity of the lead characters or the increasingly not-funny-just-hopeless situations in which they find themselves.

August 9, 2010 Full Review Source:

It's a small picture that embraces its smallness, centered on a self-reflexive premise and some twisted, punishing campy humor.

Critic's Notebook

An often wickedly funny and witty dark comedy that becomes somewhat uneven in tone and eventually loses its steam as well as its bite.

The smarmily organic execution pivots upon unpredictable flourishes of postmodern reflexivity and quiet nods to the perplexing traditions of Irish storytelling.

If Mark and Pierce had been two people whose welfare I cared more deeply about, the film might have carried me for the duration. As it is, they were a bit like guests who stayed too long at dinner.

It feels like a television episode gone on too long.

The epilogue leaves you feeling hollow and empty, but as a less-than-satisfying film concludes, you may also realise that this is entirely the point.

Shot digitally on a low budget, the film is basically a one-joke concept spun out to 90 minutes.

A rather outrageous comedy which knows exactly what it's doing and, within its limitations, does it very well indeed.

What begins as downbeat Irish humour soon turns into bleak, black comedy in this dryly farcical Irish film, made possible by perfectly pitched, deadpan performances that are kept in check

A wonderfully black Irish comedy in which one dead body leads to another, this unassuming film takes a simple premise and milks it for all its worth. And it works beautifully

Audience Reviews for A Film with Me in It

Superbly strange. Perfect hilarity!! I knew I'd love this after about 5 minutes. A witty score, dark script, poker-faced characters - and the most deadpan, black Irish humor that shortly turns side-slappingly outrageous. The chemistry between these two Irish losers is tremendous. Dylan Moran (Pearce) is brilliant, and so is Mark Doherty (Mark); together they are a flawless comedic pair. Fantastic quirky fun!

This is one of those films you'll either love or you'll wonder why you & they bothered. I'm "b".

    1. Pierce: Not many people die by chandelier, Mark. Or fall off a wonky table and get a screwdriver in their neck. In the same half hour.
