Movie Info

Director Ian Fitzgibbon crafts this darkly comic tale, produced and set in Ireland, about a dissolute scriptwriter and a dejected actor who become unwittingly drawn into a labyrinthine mess when several people experience bizarre accidental deaths in their flat. Though the men didn't deliberately cause any of the incidents, they fear that they will be unfairly pegged as murderers if they relay information to the cops, and promptly set about disposing of the corpses in gruesome ways. Meanwhile, as the hapless victims of fate wage a valiant battle to take control of their bizarre situation, their gruff landlord makes an already tense situation absolutely unbearable. Dylan Moran, Mark Doherty, and Keith Allen star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for A Film with Me in It

All Critics (13)

Things after the halfway point move from the ridiculous to the stupid.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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.

Full Review… | August 9, 2010

It's a small picture that embraces its smallness, centered on a self-reflexive premise and some twisted, punishing campy humor.

Critic's Notebook

An often wickedly funny and witty dark comedy that becomes somewhat uneven in tone and eventually loses its steam as well as its bite.

NYC Movie Guru

The smarmily organic execution pivots upon unpredictable flourishes of postmodern reflexivity and quiet nods to the perplexing traditions of Irish storytelling.

If Mark and Pierce had been two people whose welfare I cared more deeply about, the film might have carried me for the duration. As it is, they were a bit like guests who stayed too long at dinner.

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!
