| What Would You Do With Your Last 30 Minutes?
'Dead on Time' is short comedy starring Rowan Atkinson as Bernard Fripp, a man whose doctor tells him that he has barely 30 minutes to live. The premise is not so original (as it is hardly in any other case), but such material could offer many amusing moments, and that is what 'Dead on Time' does, but unfortunately not too much. It is not badly written 30 minutes of comedy, but one expects much more from writers such as Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson himself. It was nice to see how some of Atkinson's comedic trademarks already there.

Still, as a huge Atkinson's fan, I found these thirty minutes quite enjoyable and not a time wasted. If these would have been my last 30 minutes, then using them to watch this film, wouldn't be that much of a waste.
