    Wacky, dark comedy with an incredible cast.

    Don't have much to say about this film really. I always say that then I end up writing a 10,000-word essay on the film. But I digress, Sam Neill does his best Hugh Grant impression in this fairly decent rom-com. It has its moments, much like any film, but this is a dark comedy that lacks the dark comedy. It certainly tries to be dark, but I think it's just a superficial facade. Something to give it an edge that it probably needed to set itself apart from the pack. When I think of this film I'm reminded of another "dark" comedy in Undertaking Betty. That film is much the same as this one, its "edge" is just a facade. Granted, I enjoyed this film slightly more than I did Undertaking Betty. It's just got a quick pace, this movie won't overstay its welcome, and the cast is good all around. I won't complain about that. But, and perhaps this is the film's biggest issue, is that everything just feels so one-dimensional. From the plotting to the characters, there's just nothing about this film that has any real depth. Karen has an interesting back-story, but it's not something they devote a lot of time to. It's clear there are some psychological issues there that could've been explored in a subversive manner. But that's just me, I don't know about anybody else. This movie is so intent on coming across as a dark comedy because it's really everything but. At the end of the day, this is a light rom-com that is trying to pretend to be something it is not. You see right through it immediately. Perhaps if they were upfront about it I wouldn't have much of a problem. I'm a big fan of Love, Actually and that movie is one of the lightest, breeziest films you will ever see. I don't have any problem with that, but this idea that this is a comedy with dark themes is just absurd. I really didn't think the film was that bad, but I imagine the cast had a lot to do with that. I don't think I would've been impressed with the script if I had read it beforehand. It's something that had to be elevated past its very low ceiling by a talented cast. And, by and large, the cast does elevate it. It elevates it to an average status. It was a double instead of a home run. Easy enough to watch, but nothing you will remember in a day.

    Admittedly I love helena Bohnam Carter and that's the only reason I saw this movie. Now normally in my reviews I start out with the truth then tell you more about the cast, and then I tell you about the review. So I guess I should do that, because it makes a really good and popular review. Sweet Revenge/Revenger's Comedies Directed by: Malcom Mowbray Cast: Sam Neil: Henrey Bell Helena Bohnam Carter: Karen Knightly Rupert Graves - Oliver Knightly Kristin Scott Thomas - Imogen Saxton-Billing Martin Clunes - Anthony Saxton Billing John Wood - Col. Marcus Anita Dobson - Daphne Teal Adrian Scarborough - Percy Cutting Zoe Hilson - Lydia Francois Domange - Wine Waiter Steve Coogan - Bruce Tick Liz Smith - Winnie Charlotte Coleman - Norma Sandra Reinton - Hilary Tick Jamie O'Brien - Damien Tick Dicken Ashworth - Lorry Driver Now that we have that out of the way I have a couple of people that I would like to point out as being extremly talented in this movie. Helena Bohnam Carter, Rupert Graves, Sam Neil, and kristin Scott Thomas. Helena Bohnam Carter, like i said in the begining of the reveiw, is very talented and I love her acting. Helena Bohnam Carter is very talented and has a very funny sense of brittish humor. She as always did a reallly stunning performance that kept you laughing and waiting impatiantly to see what she was up to next. Many people know her from Sweeney Todd, Big Fish, ect. but this is in her earlier years so she looks younger, and her acting isn't a perfected yet, but she still has the same witt, charm, and talent as always. Rupert Graves is Helena Bohnam Carter's brother in this movie and does a really wondeful job. You only see him for about twenty minutes max in the whole movie but he does a reallly memorable performace, he madee it onto my top actors the first time I saw him. I hope you feel the same about him as I did. Sam Neil was a really talented actor and he felt like a real person, a little more believable than Helena Bohnam Carter, but her character was supossed to be a little crazier. Sam Neil was good but not as good as the other members of the cast. Kristin Scott Thomas is a very great actress and she does a stunning performance and is very memorable, look for her, It won't be that hard to see her. So overall this movie happens to be in the top three top british movies I've ever seen. And in the top five all movies I've ever seen.
