This comedy drama, a sort of British version of The Big Chill (1983), was directed by Kenneth Branagh. Ten years after they were members of a music and comedy troupe at Cambridge University, a diverse group of friends in their early 30s gather at the expansive estate of Peter Morton (Stephen Fry), who's invited them there for a reunion. Among the guests are Andrew (Branagh), who has married Carol (Rita Rudner), the star of the American situation comedy he writes; lonely Maggie (Emma Thompson),

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
stephen fry is a great actor, and should act more
...a surprisingly entertaining little flick that benefits substantially from the almost uniformly stellar performances...
A terrific ensemble, breath of fresh air for Branagh
lively and hilarious
Surprisingly charming comedy.
Brilliant cast, above-average wit
Why does this genre endure, and why does it attract actors of the caliber of Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Emma Thompson?
Some witty humor and amusing characters, but suffocates from the weight of its own pretentiousness.
Good, but not great ensemble piece.
Audience Reviews for Peter's Friends
- Maggie: Fill me with your little babies!
- Carol: You make Mother Teresa look like a hooker.
- Andrew: If there is a God, I think he takes a lot of long lunches.
- Peter: It's funny. With both my parents gone, suddenly I have this overwhelming urge to act maturely.
- Andrew: Oh, I don't think anyone really matures. I think adults are just children who owe money.
- Carol: Look at this armoire. Is this real?
- Andrew: No, it's imaginary.
- Andrew: What's this then?
- Peter: It's called a potbelly. We have those in England along with culture.
