Rich ensemble cast makes the movie
As a member of the audience at the premiere, I found myself constantly laughing and looking forward to the next crazy scene. The ensemble cast (not unlike the group in Brenda Blethyn's recent movie, Saving Grace) made for a rich banter and many hilarious moments. Robbie Coltrane, as the working class bloke trying to do right for his family, was a wonderful foil for the rest of the cast. The young fellow who played his assistant did a fabulous job of presenting a likeable, mischievous guy who doesn't always do the right thing. Coltrane's mother-in-law character provides some of the funniest lines of the film.
If you want a light-hearted, feel-good movie, don't miss On the Nose.
I highly recommend it.
