Movie Info

The turbulent collaboration between legendary British comedy duo Dudley Moore and Peter Cook is explored in this biographical feature that traces the career of the pair from their early days in the groundbreaking Beyond the Fringe comedy troupe to their later status as foul-mouthed filth kings Derek and Clive. From the moment Moore (Aidan McArdle) and Cook (Rhys Ifans) met as undergraduate students, their comic sensibilities were perfectly intertwined. Though in public their remarkable wit and uncanny sense of timing would gain the pair international acclaim, when the bright lights of the stage went dim, Cook and Moore were burning from the inside with bitter resentment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • Mar 30, 2008
    a great and nostalgic look at two english comedy greats peter cook and dudley moore and there really bad working relationship, and solo careers, it sems there working ways just dident gel, and many nights of bad stage performance, there up and downs and hi life, cooks jealousy at moores hollywood career,and possibly, a criticly better career. rhys fans, as cook is superb, a welshman nailing cooks english acent, and charactor, also aidan mcardle as moore, again nailing his charactor, what starts off as possibly a film about cooke soon turns into a film about both, and moore and cooke getting equal share of screen time, the film covers good ground, and although like all biographies, events probely changed, charactors created, me not being the biggest fan of the two, and not knowing much, i certainly was informed, and am certainly interested exploring there work more, lots of cook and moore work getting recreated here, and although im not best to judge, seems genuin and looks good,

    This true-to-life dramatization of the comedy double act Peter Cook and Dudley Moore is notable mainly for Rhys Ifans' remarkable performance. He IS Peter Cook! The witty and insightful script is full of his characteristically surreal barbs and satire, and shows the behind the scenes squabbling and resentments that show that once again, genius and madness seem to go hand in hand. The post-modern device of having a black and white Pete and Dud commentating on the story is more annoying than amusing, but otherwise, a fine bio pic.
