Product Description

Amazon.ca

Monty Python's John Cleese makes this lighthearted farce work as a tightly wound, punctilious public school headmaster whose well-organized life unravels in a series of disasters on his journey to a conference. Cleese is a master of fussy, fastidious characters in exasperating situations, bottling up his frustration under good manners and sardonic comments until he finally blows, but he's also startlingly vulnerable as he systematically loses all sense of himself. Dressed in monk's robes and stranded on a lonely country road, he looks down at his naked wrist and sighs, "I've even lost the time." Michael Fryan (the playwright of Noises Off) doesn't really have much of a story behind the situations, but he provides plenty of complications, and Cleese holds the film together with his brittle manner, single-minded drive, and hilarious headmaster's condescending haughtiness. While it will seem slight to many, Cleese fans will love it. --Sean Axmaker

From the Back Cover

Mr. Brian Stimpson ran his life—and everyone else's—by the clock. Then one day at 2:09 and 43 seconds… The clock decided to strike back. In this hilarious comedy hit written by Michael Frayn (Noises Off), John Cleese stars as the compulsively punctual headmaster of a British high school. But on the day Stimpson is to give a major speech at the posh teachers conference, he finds himself in a frantic cross-country chase filled with missed trains, confused cops, strange monks, odd old ladies and stolen clothes. Can Stimpson make up for precious lost time of is the entire world conspiring to make him late for the most important appointment of his life?

John Cleese is at his best in this jolly picture. Wonderful scrip and actor's staff. Five Stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes Cleese! Oct. 28 2003
Format:DVD
It doesn't have much in the way of penetrating insights into religion, but this frantic Frayn/Cleese race across East Anglia is as good a transposition of farce to the silver screen as we've ever seen. The pace is kept just taut enough throughout (something A Fish Called Wanda never managed) and the roll-call of British character actors is dished out liberally without ever turning into an "ooh look, it's him off of Kinvig!" distraction, most notably Geoffrey Palmer, Penelope Wilton and Stephen Moore.

Not five stars because it lacks rhytm in the end, but still a very good/funny work from Cleese. (Not as good as his Fawlty Towers TV series or A Fish called Wanda film ...thought), but then the script must be good to get the best from him.
If a Clesse fan well worth seeing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment March 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
John Cleese seemed a bit off his game in this one. He didn't have that spark he had in A Fish Called Wanda and Fierce Creatures (two of my all-time favorites). I kept waiting for it to get funny and it didn't happen. Mostly it just reminded me of uncomfortable times when I was running late and everything kept going wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Cleese Strikes again! Sept. 6 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie offers something that we rarely see these days, utter hilarity. I profusely enjoyed this movie. It was a great blend of good acting and a touch of slapstick. John Cleese delivers his utmost finest performance I have seen him in yet, and keeps a straight face about it all. There are thrills, of course laughs, and a great little ending. This is a movie you must go out and buy, no matter where the road may take you.
