Rowan Atkinson's recalcitrant TV character is the hub of this 1997 feature that will disappoint fans and nonfans alike.
Atkinson's reactive brand of bug-eyed and near-silent comedy has always been more akin to Jacques Tati--plus a lecherous pinch of Jerry Lewis, the better to invade the viewer's personal space.
Atkinson is able to hit the comic jackpot through grunts, gestures, body movements, and, most of all, facial expressions.
Atkinson's genius at portraying a pesky, childish adult is reminiscent of the great comic stars of silent movies, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.
The film is little more than a showcase for Atkinson's broad slapstick comedy, overdone facial contortions, and bathroom humor.
Okay, Rowan Atkinson is a funny guy. So what the hell happened with this?
