Audience Reviews for John Cleese on How to Irritate People
This is sort of a documentary or a "mockumentary"? The sketches remind me of Monty Python a lot. Cleese is really funny and this movie has some really good sketches, but I wished he could have put them together into a narrative story.More
A bit of pre-Pythonism from John Cleese and co shows the beginnings of the beloved formula, but it isn't quite there yet as most of the team are glaring in their absence. A few funny moments, but if you're expecting comic genius on the level of The Holy Grail or even And Now For Something Completely different, you'll be disappointed.More
