So enjoyable.

That punch really made me flinch though!

Anyone else watched it?

hated it. 70 minutes was too long. A collection of vile people being horrible to each other IMO, and why was it in black and white?
Out of interest, what did you like about it?

Im so fickle I'm immediately questioning my judgement!

I thought it looked good and music was good.
I could relate to the characters/world being sent up (blush)
It reminded me of seeing similar satirical comedy's on stage. I haven't been to the theatre in ages.
I liked that it had funny lines but wasn't too clever. No huge political commentary, just poked around a bit, had a laugh.
Great acting.

The Peter Sellers film? Birdy num num? Loved it 20 years ago, need to see it again!

Unfortunately not the Peter Sellars film.
A lot of the reviews I read said much the audience was laughing, but it hardly raised a tItter at my viewing. Yes, the acting was good and it was a great cast but that was it. It would make a much better stage play imo

Audience I was with laughed a lot. Too much actually. They laughed whenever Cillian Murphy was doing coke which I didn't get? I think everyone just wanted to laugh.

I watched the Birdy NUM NUM scene thanks!

I liked It, the person I saw it with hated it. It was in a very small cinema and a couple of people left.

Not as funny as the reviews made out and the plot doesn't really make sense but well acted and shot.

I'm surprised it was bad enough for people to leave.

I went to the loo part way through. Was very tempted to go back into the Blade Runner showing and, if I was alone, probably wouldue have.

Saw it last night and really enjoyed it. Hadn't read any reviews.

Superb acting, great script and completely nuts. Felt like a play.
