Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story

Critics Consensus

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon add madcap, knowing performances to the mix, and the result is a fun, postmodern romp.

Audience Reviews for Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story

    'Tristram Shandy' is a great deal less clever than it thinks it is.

    It doesn't make one wit of sense but then again, this is an adaptaion of an unadaptable book so it makes sense for it not to make any sense. The interplay between Coogan and Brydon is great to watch and we get more of it in The Trip. You could do a movie just watching those two go at it..and quite frankly that is this movie.

    your mileage may vary according to your taste in 18th century literature, british comedy and/or the post-modern film stylings of michael winterbottom/steve coogan. i enjoyed it very much, tho it's messy and not everything works. one clever bit, amongst many clever bits, was the score's subtly referencing everything from barry lyndon to 8 1/2, perhaps an allusion to the many charges of plagiarism against the novel

    I don't really get this type of "comedy" and I don't really like Steve Coogan. I do however like Rob Brydan and Gillian Anderson, but apart from that the film failed to impress me and I don't remember laughing once.
