Funny Cow (2017)
Critic Reviews for Funny Cow
One of those intriguing but raggedy films that ultimately adds up to less than the sum of its promising parts ...
Whilst it doesn't carry the same weight as something like Educating Rita, Funny Cow still has you wondering what kind of tears are in your eyes.
It's a tough, passionate and compassionate account of survival at all costs (what would you do, and say, to escape a desperate life?) and a troubling portrait of an unsavoury element of national character that still very much exists.
Funny Cow does look the part... And [Maxine] Peake, as the mouthy, belligerent, ballsy Funny Cow, is always a joy to watch, while the jokes - distilled from contemporaneous acts - prove just how far comedy has come.
The film is broken up with intertitles that seem unnecessary, as does the business of having the adult characters meet their childhood selves. But the story is wholly worth telling. And Peake is blistering.
