Audience Reviews for The Revengers' Comedies (Sweet Revenge)


This movie just wanders all over the place without really going anywhere. The humor jumps back and forth between absurd (slightly surreal) scenes, quirky characters, and droll comedy-of-manners scenarios, and combining them all somehow made them less funny. Just an *odd* movie that I couldn't get into on any level.


omg i finally saw this it was amazing it was really funny helena bonham carter did excellent in the movie i luved it so so os much she was so evill and so sexy omg!

Halle .......

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.

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.
