Steve Coogan is the whole show in Hamlet 2, and while director and co-writer Andrew Fleming is strictly rudimentary in terms of technique and style, his British star pockets every available laugh plus a few unavailable ones.
Dead Poets Society, Dangerous Minds, Mr. Holland's Opus, all 'great' movies about 'great' teachers inspiring their students to achieve great things -- all movies referenced lovingly by Steve Coogan's 'inspiring' teacher in Hamlet 2.
Despite the richness of the premise for comic invention, however, Hamlet 2 remains a rather mediocre experience, offering sporadic laughs but never achieving the level of consistent humor necessary to make this memorable.
