  • It's no real murder-mystery, but it does pose questions that transcend who did what to whom and when. One of which being whether or not you can really play "jazz" in Scrabble.

  • Often, the whole shebang plays like a rattle bag of tropes, digressions and stray running gags. Then again, that randomness is perfectly apt...

  • An off-beat comedy written by Frank Cottrell Boyce in which Bill Nighy plays a controlling, mordantly witty Scouser coming to terms with the unwritten rules of life.

  • The sweet emotional payoff is an unexpected reward.

  • Some of the animated interludes inch towards indie tweeness, but the film's tone is too singular to be swamped in formulaic whimsy. Despite spots of dead air - even because of them - it somehow sticks with you.

  • A cherishable, rarefied mystery-comedy.
