London: The Sixties. Two down-on-their-luck actors (Withnail and Marwood) find solace in drink and other substances. Seeking respite from their uneventful lives they escape up north to Penrith to Withnail's uncle's stone cottage. Faced with no modern conveniences, a bunch of oddball locals, and a surprise visit from an amorous "Uncle Monty", their wits are tested, along with their friendship.

Great film, great price. Scrubbers.....

What's in your hump?

Ranks along with Blade Runner as 'most overrated film of all time'.

Didn`t like this film at all!

This and Bladerunner are two of the greatest films ever. Heat added.

Indeed. Very much so.

Surely this film deserves to rated as a cult classic for the wonderfully witty script and inspired casting. Worth the money for the tea shop scene alone. Whether you think it overrated or not it has to be worth three notes less change? I'd absolutely rather watch this than a bloated over budget US blockbuster with a limp script and equally flaccid cast to boot. Consistently rated high by critics and the public and qualifying for a reunion spot on R4 for the key cast and production team to relive and reminisce about the fateful circumstance that brought them all together to make a film that was destined to become an all time classic. It is full of comic pathos and laugh out loud eminently quotable one liners. Total Film magazine voted Withnail and I the 3rd greatest comedy film of all time and Rotten Tomatoes gives it 8.4 out of 10. IMDB gives it 7.8 out of 10. Go on give it a go! You never know you might like it better than lighter fluid or a Camberwell carrot and most definitely better than going on holiday by mistake. :whistling:

love, love , love this amazing film.
"very expensive to those who cannot afford it free to those who can "
Love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i bought this about a year ago for this price from play. was mildly miffed tho that the whole movie came as one huge chapter meaning fastforward was the only way of skipping the movie to where you wanted to watch it from - so beware, it might be the case again

Brilliant film. Better than most over-hyped American blockbusters.

British film making at its very best. Definately the kind of film you can watch more than once. Voted hot.

For real. I've got this on DVD twice. Must be good then....

This is one of my favourite films ever. Well worth 3 quid!

I've watched it many, many times and I love it.. It has great acting, a brilliant script and is very funny. A classic in every sense and no I'm no a student.

True.this version is crap..poor,poor quality,bno extras or chapters...go for the Special Edition (]http//ww…tml .In fact, Play.com advertise this version incorrectly no extras etc.Already flagged it up with them but obviously don`t care!

Banned

I got this free in the Times last week, might watch it now and stop using it as a coaster

Great film, was great when i was a student and still great 10 years later!

That is a much better deal 'cos the £2.99 version was a newspaper freebie last week - loads will end up in charity shops for sale at a few pennies.

If this is the same transfer as the one I used to own then avoid it because the picture quality is crap. The image is not anamorphic so on a widescreen TV it appears with black borders all round. You would be better off buying the 20th anniversary edition which costs £6.99 from Play, has a second DVD and a CD of the soundtrack. The picture quality is excellent and properly encoded.

Amazingly funny film and a MUST SEE for all film fans!
This and bladerunner overrated :roll: clearly you have appalling taste in films!!
Both classics imho

'As a youth I used to weep in butchershops'
'Here hare here'
'Get in the back of the van!!!' HOT!

One assumes it isn't funny at all. A bit like Withnail and I.
