I'm a huge fan of Robbie Coltrane, dating back to his early work with Emma Thompson in Tutti Frutti, and his later work in Cracker. Brenda Blethyn was okay in Saving Grace, and Dan Aykroyd can be funny, though it has been a long time since he's played something other than a bad sitcom character. I was hoping On The Nose might be a cute little comedy, not too farcical. The best would have been a Full Monty/Commitments movie, the worst would have been a John Cleese Like Clockwork. Unfortunately, this movie is closer to the Like Clockwork stinker. I found the movie to have very few jokes, and those jokes were telegraphed well in advance. With a joint production of the Irish Film Board, Canadian Film Board, BC Film Board, Sky Television, and CHUM Television, one wonders if there were too many cooks in the production of this luke warm broth. Characters were neither original nor likeable. Bottom line was that I really didn't care what happened to anyone in this movie. One wonders how this film actually got made. Surely there must be better scripts out there than this. This makes Saving Grace seem like a laugh fest.
