When his professional career hits a lull, an actor attempts to revitalize his career by staging a production of Hamlet, directed by and starring himself. Director and star Kenneth Branagh would in fact release his own film version of Shakespeare's classic play a year later, but this comedy provides his fictional counterpart with far less in terms of production value. Lacking money and time, he recruits a rather motley group of drunks, incompetents, and oddballs, including a middle-aged female

[An] inoffensive trifle.
Excellent, hilarious bookend to Branagh's Hamlet. If you or someone you love is in theatre, you must watch.
One of Branagh's most charming works too little seen.
A nice viewing alternative to the usual Christmas pap, and goes well with a fireplace and a snowy December day.
Delivers a bittersweet portrait of the trials and surprising rewards that come with being part of a theatre company.
A seriously funny ensemble farce.
