Audience Reviews for Bill

  • Jun 01, 2016
    This was enjoyable and definitely one of those films that deserves cult status. I can't remember watching something with such ties to Monty Python, not as crude or savage but never the less still very funny. I honestly wish they made many more of these movies instead of the 250m mega budgeted films. The cast do well with clever puns and situational humour, the film never sits on the one joke which is nice. A lot of films in this day and age tend to go for a lot of quick and tasteless jokes that never float with the audience. If the creators go with another production, I'll be quite eager to check it out. 25-10-2017.

    Very reminiscent of Monty Python, the Horrible Histories crew take a lighthearted look at Billy the Shake for a brief idle in catty Elizabethan doldrums. There's plenty of referential oneliners to go around in this that has the cast assume several roles, and that's where most of the fun is as well. Anglophiles will get their due quotient here.
