Critic Reviews for Three and Out
Too gauche, too derivative and merely sporadically amusing.
The mystery is why some of Britain's finest character actors including Crook, Meaney, Antony Sher and Imelda Staunton got caught up in this mess.
There's no light at the end of the tunnel in this misguided romp whose solitary redeeming feature is its quality cast.
Rare winning moments aside, Three and Out is unconvincing, uneven and unfunny: a severe points failure.
Ostensibly a black comedy, this Brit road movie engages most in its more reflective moments, focusing on characters' feelings of guilt, anger, sadness and regret.
Audience Reviews for Three and Out
Decent comedy drama with Mackenzie Crook as a man who, already bored with his job as a London tube driver, becomes even more depressed when two people throw themselves under his train in as many weeks. But later our man finds out if he hits three people iin a month he gets early retirement and 10 years salary. Spurred on by this he attempts to find a third victim/accident so he can finish his job, claim the ten years salary and move to his dream house, in the middle of nowhere in Scotland, and get on with his dream job as a writer. This is a well written, effective comedy drama with good performances from Crook, Colm Meaney, Imelda Staunton and the lovely Gemman Arterton.
