Critic Reviews for Peter's Friends
Peter's Friends won't win over anyone looking for depth - as drama, it's pure popcorn - but the vignettes are swept along by Branagh's richly theatrical temperament and by the exuberant wit of the cast.
Many of the lines and the shadings brought to them by these expert performers are good for some laughs, and pic has plenty of energy, but it can't be taken as seriously as it wants to be.
Although it addresses AIDS more directly than many films have, it remains a lightweight entertainment, enjoyable mostly for the fun of hearing arch, skillful actors deliver droll remarks.
With a smattering of one-liners, and a dash of ironic spirit, "Peter's Friends" is a diverting, if modest affair.
Audience Reviews for Peter's Friends
I've been meaning to watch this film ever since reading its review on a Microsoft Cinemania '95 CD... it's very much a product of its time with the 80s soundtrack reminding me of discos from the early 90s. A bunch of thespians playing thespians; there's not much to describe with giving the plot away - worthwhile if you're a fan of Branagh & Thompson or Fry & Laurie.
Interesting relationships between old friends.
