Movie Info

As a group assembles for a two-day sales course called ' Win Only Win,' Godfrey sets the tone by informing us that we have no control over our lives and are merely his pawns. We are introduced to the hapless alarm salesman Vic Timms, whom Godfrey announces he will pair up with the gorgeous and predatory estate agent Mary MacDalen. As night falls and drink is consumed, Godfrey makes Mary strike a wager that she can seduce Vic and the young boy-band manager Jamie. The conference progresses, a web of connections between all the delegates is revealed and past actions crowd in on an increasingly suspenseful present. The next day howver, brings a truly terrible surprise, a moment of unalloyed joy and a final twist that is literally devilish...

Critic Reviews for Acts of Godfrey

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

A strained exercise in dramaturgical gimmickry that would be trying even as fringe theater.

The results are slight but old-fashioned fun, Think less TS Eliot, more 'Carry On'.

The dialogue is in rhyming couplets, an initially amusing device that rapidly becomes tiresome as the listener comes to anticipate the end of the next line, "vicars" inevitably being followed three seconds later by "knickers".

It chose the wrong form, and we're hiding a yawn.

Whoever first believed this film was a good idea must, I'm afraid, be severely spoken to - preferably not in verse.

January 27, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Things only properly kick off in a frantic farce-like finale; by then the laboriousness of the plotting has taken its toll.
