Although the mock/rockumentary is as tired a conceit as the zom-rom-com, this is also done with such heart it doesn't matter too much, plus Considine is wonderful.
November 22, 2011
A fun five day feature from one of Britain's finest filmmakers.
June 24, 2010
The gags are either too inside, lazily paced, or simply not funny.
March 17, 2010
Affable yet thoroughly forgettable...
October 16, 2009
Think Spinal Rap. A likeable and sporadically funny film, it's rather slight for a theatrical release.
October 16, 2009
Considine is outrageously funny and never steps out of character, but the film hardly adds up to an evening's entertainment.
October 16, 2009
The film has about as much sense of structure as - well, as Thirst, but I laughed a fair bit.
October 16, 2009
Some British film-makers never give up and Shane Meadows is one of them. He'd make a movie of a custard pie if he could. And generally there's entertainment to be had from even his most hand-to-mouth efforts.
October 9, 2009
A monumental mockumentary from Brit cinema's premier director/actor double act. True, daft, emotional, hilarious.
October 9, 2009
An endearing effort with enough heart to fill the gaps where the gags dry up or fall flat.
October 9, 2009
Jaw-bustingly funny stuff, uproarious, delightful and unexpectedly touching, containing more laugh-out-loud moments than most Hollywood comedies twice the length.
October 9, 2009
Considine's performance, for instance, is an enthralling piece of improvisation that carries the entire movie.
October 9, 2009
The film is slight, but there's enough there for Meadows to create a plausible narrative arc with solid laughs along the way.
October 9, 2009
A warm and improvised comedy that will appeal to anyone with a penchant for jokes about Beth Ditto.
October 9, 2009
Largely improvised and inevitably a little rambling and loosely structured but there are some genuinely funny moments along the way.
October 9, 2009
Shane Meadows's movies are always brimming full of originality and verve and Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee is arguably his most daring effort so far.
October 9, 2009
A comedy miracle that is the mirthful match for any so-called fun-fest that has emerged from Hollywood this year.
October 9, 2009
The plot is threadbare and the style is knockabout, but the improvisation, especially that of Considine, lends it an energy and spirit that's hard to resist.
October 9, 2009
It's the dynamic between the crass, artless Le Donk and Scor-zay-zee, his quiet, overweight partner who's capable of delivering brilliant raps, that wins here.
October 9, 2009
Even with a short running time (71 mins) this scrappy, unendearing squib outstays its welcome.
