Critic Reviews for A Film with Me in It
Things after the halfway point move from the ridiculous to the stupid.
No amount of sly, beguiling Irish charm can overcome the inherent stupidity of the lead characters or the increasingly not-funny-just-hopeless situations in which they find themselves.
It's a small picture that embraces its smallness, centered on a self-reflexive premise and some twisted, punishing campy humor.
An often wickedly funny and witty dark comedy that becomes somewhat uneven in tone and eventually loses its steam as well as its bite.
The smarmily organic execution pivots upon unpredictable flourishes of postmodern reflexivity and quiet nods to the perplexing traditions of Irish storytelling.
Audience Reviews for A Film with Me in It
Really a one joke dark,dark comedy but they get about as much as humanly possible out of that one joke.
It kept seeming like it might become amusing, but it never happened despite the efforts of the two main actors. For a film that works with characters who find themselves in the same predicament see Tucker and Dale vs Evil.
Superbly strange. Perfect hilarity!! I knew I'd love this after about 5 minutes. A witty score, dark script, poker-faced characters - and the most deadpan, black Irish humor that shortly turns side-slappingly outrageous. The chemistry between these two Irish losers is tremendous. Dylan Moran (Pearce) is brilliant, and so is Mark Doherty (Mark); together they are a flawless comedic pair. Fantastic quirky fun!
