It doesn't quite add up as a convincingly rounded drama, thanks largely to a tepid feelgood ending, but there are many good moments - and the expert acting from Blethyn alone is worth the price of a ticket.September 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
Brenda Blethyn gets her teeth into the role of a flamboyant showbiz monster who can't accept that her career has failed to make the big time.
This heartfelt, good-natured film grew on me, and Blethyn always commands attention.September 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
You can't help but mourn for the hint of an intriguing film that could have been.
In the hands of Mike Leigh, this could be a masterpiece, as it is, it's forgettable fun.September 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
Feels like a Sunday night TV drama - and not a very good one at that.
Audience Reviews for Introducing the Dwights
Aug 18, 2009I enjoyed this movie, perhaps because I identified a bit with Tim. There are a lot of insecure people in this movie. Tim's mom cannot stand to have someone take Tim away from her family. Tim is insecure about dealing with girls - even Jill doesn't know what to do with someone as shy as Tim. I enjoyed the actors - especially the mom who is a comedienne who borders on being funny. The part of Mark was a little confusing as there are times he seems quite delayed and others when there is little wrong with him. By the way, this movie was called Clubland in Australia, but Introducing the Dwights in North America.Red L Super Reviewer
Dec 06, 2008Introducing the Dwights is a good comedy starring the very delightful Brenda Blethyn. The Dwights are a family lead by the single and divorced mother (Blethyn). This family with two children live in Australia. This movie centers on a mother whom is a comedian and is noticing her son is getting old enough to have his attentions be on a young lady. The realization that he may not be all her own and live at home is something difficult for her to take. A good and funny movie.Mason W Super Reviewer
