| The darkest and best.
I first saw this 'Rik Mayall Presents...' episode about ten years ago. I loved it then, but was a bit too young to REALLY love it.

I watched it again yesterday, the first time I had seen it in about 9 years. I nearly died laughing.

There are several reasons this film is so brilliant. The first is that Peter Learmouth's script is excellent. An interesting feature is the way in which the viewer ends up not knowing who to feel sorry for, albeit until the very end.

The second reason is the acting. Amanda Donohoe is great, but Rik Mayall obviously steals the show. The 'Rik Mayall Presents...' run gave Rik a chance to show off his acting skills, and he actually can give impressive performances, which is difficult to believe when you are brought up wathcing Bottom and The Young Ones.

Finally, the directing is fantastic. The constant resurgence of Rachmaninov's 2nd piano concerto adds a subtly to the film that cannot be described.

An interesting thing to observe is the number of jokes/themes that seem to have be taken from this film into the hollywood film "There's Something About Mary."

10/10 - Kudos.
