Both Oldman and Roth turn in flat and uninspiring performances.

As happens at the opera, one usually laughs (if one laughs at all) not because something is funny, but because one has successfully recognized that it is supposed to be funny.

As a movie, this material, freely adapted by Stoppard, is boring and endless. It lies flat on the screen, hardly stirring.

Staged as they are here, the jokes and the fourth-wall gamesmanship don't seem as funny as they did on the page.
