A lovely, dark, British comedy. Dry humor at its finest.

Enjoyable enough with funny performances from Maggie Smith and Rowan Atkinson as usual. You aren't going to laugh uncontrollably but will get a few chuckles out of it.

The ensemble cast is great. The comic timing very funny

Patrick Swayze in an against type comedy role against the backdrop of a Rowan Atkinson black comedy is unique genre, and with a charming sweet yet mysterious role from Maggie Smith, Keeping Mum achieves a certain level of laughs. It is primarily of a British style and with an occasional American touch supplying a good laugh, even if it is inconsistent.

I mean, sometimes there's just nothing worse watching and it's just a boring directionless tale of a strange woman. But Keeping Mum is a relaxed and ok comedy in parts, as long as you're not hoping for a tremendous amount of laughs.

I was all set to give this movie a 4 right up until the last 30 seconds...other than that I enjoyed it and Rowan Atkinson actually had a role that didn't make me want to scream.

An energetic, perfectly cast film which seems to get stupider by the scene. Maybe that's what makes it very, very funny and exciting. Dame Maggie Smith plays Grace to perfection, as well as Rowan Atkinson and Kristin Scott Thomas, but nods to the two children Egerton and Parkes, who constantly entertain.

Maggie Smith es una gran actriz y logra interpretar maravillosamente a esta adorable anciana con un pasado brutal y un presente muy singular!!!

Think I saw this one like 2006 or 2007. Twas alright; neither extraordinary nor awful. I quite often like British humour though, so if you don't, maybe you won't like this. =)

You looking for a fix of British humour? Watch this film. This dry and dark film will make you laugh :)

it was an ok movie, thought it was ok, Rowan Ackinson, Maggie Smith starred in it, it was a good movie, I loved it. It also starred Patrick Swayze and Kristin Scott Thomas, it was a good movie but I don't want it on DVD

"Keeping Mum" is a very funny black comedy that runs out of steam near the end, but remains entertaining throughout. Worth a watch.

Apesar de contar com um ótimo elenco, "De Bico Calado" aposta em roteiro fraco e que faz tudo no filme soar extremamente artificial.

Umm, light hearted not serious movie about an old lady who kills a few people. Fab British cast plus Patrick swayze. Also staring Kristen Scott Thomas who is one of my fave actresses. Was quite amusing and entertaining with an unexpected funny ending :)

I found the quiet "innosence" of Maggie Smith's character hilareous! It was also refreshing to see Rowan Atkinson in a decent role without having him acting like a stupid goof. The ending had my husband & I laughing out loud!

So wicked and sour is this english comedy that it will occasionally have you thinking how someone could even suggest the idea of having Maggie Smith be a sweet-and-innocent-seeming-yet-ultra-evil-serial-killer without being a sadistic weirdo. There is a lot of comedy on display, and for all the murder and mayhem, it is a very peaceful and enjoyable film.

Delightful lighthearted Brit wit which was played superbly by the dependable cast.

the Smith-Atkinson-Scott Thomas was great. i loved the character of Atkinson, and enjoyed the "logic" of Smith :D
