Movie Info

Monty Python alumni John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, and Eric Idle reunite for this sci-fi comedy directed and co-written by Jones (along with Gavin Scott), and centering on the story of a group of mischievous extraterrestrials (voiced by the Python crew) who grant embittered schoolteacher Neil Clarke (Simon Pegg) extraordinary powers in order to see how he will use them. Subsequently seeking the wisdom of his loyal canine companion Dennis (voice of Robin Williams) in order to use his powers wisely, Clarke is ultimately forced to choose between the girl of his dreams (Kate Beckinsale), or the four-legged friend who has never left his side. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Absolutely Anything

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (2)

Decades in the making, Monty Python vet Terry Jones' lame sci-fi satire squanders the contributions of top comic talents - including the late Robin Williams.

As the film itself states: 'The dog's not so bad. It's the people I can't stand'.

Absolutely Anything is just content to laugh at itself and leave everyone else stranded without a hope in the world.

There is good-natured British wackiness aplenty.

Kate Bechinsale is totally wasted with a performance that not even she believes. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Absolutely Anything


After Simon Pegg became a worldwide known actor he didn't really do many British films so this was a nice little suprise, Ok yeah it's silly and rushed but it's pretty good and funny with a simple plot and an easily likeable cast, The film itself felt like a family film but it has small bits of adult humour so not really a family film, It's easy to watch and enjoy but nothing memorable but it's nice to see Simon Pegg doing a British film again.

A waste of plot briefly saved by a few laughs!

Yes, it's a weak Monty Python reunion. As Jones directed films go, I liked this better than Eric The Viking. Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale help. So liking this film hinges on liking the stars.
