The Synopsis for Withnail & I (1987) 720p

London, 1969 - two 'resting' (unemployed and unemployable) actors, Withnail and Marwood, fed up with damp, cold, piles of washing-up, mad drug dealers and psychotic Irishmen, decide to leave their squalid Camden flat for an idyllic holiday in the countryside, courtesy of Withnail's uncle Monty's country cottage. But when they get there, it rains non-stop, there's no food, and their basic survival skills turn out to be somewhat limited. Matters are not helped by the arrival of Uncle Monty, who shows an uncomfortably keen interest in Marwood...

The Reviews for Withnail & I (1987) 720p

Booze, drugs, friendship and existentialismReviewed byema-50Vote: 7/10

This is my all time favorite movie. I saw it 5 times as a teenager at the local movie theater, when it was first shown. I just purchased it on DVD, and saw it again. It is as fresh now as it was then.

What gets me every time is the performance of Richard E. Grant, or "Withnail". It is the most harrowing and sad portrait of a young man/actor going to the dogs, despite intelligence and wit. He is more self destructive than any other movie character that I can think of. All the characters are very odd, but still seem so human and plausible.

Despite their common misery, you can't help but laugh, because the story of "Withnail and I" is so beautifully told, and presented with such great self irony. I adore this movie, and always will.

Not half the film it's cracked up to be.Reviewed bydiana-lloydVote: 3/10

There is a touch of 'emperor's new clothes' about the reviews of this film. Withnail & I really is tedious and irritating and someone needs to say so. Two unemployed actors escape their sluttish flat (yes men can be sluts) to try for a cheap holiday in a cottage in the Lake District. Getting seriously drunk in a hotel bar they then act like bullying slobs in a quiet tea shop and we are, presumably, supposed to find this hilariously funny. Hilarious also, supposedly, is Withnail's willingness to betray anyone for his own short-term gain. The only redeeming feature is Richard Griffith's brilliant portrayal of the hapless desperate Uncle Monty. Avoid.

I stayed with it and kept waiting for it to get better.Reviewed byClothes-OffVote: 3/10

I went into viewing this film with the utmost optimism that it would be just as funny and deserving of its high rating on this site as one would expect.

I wanted to like it, and boy did I try to find something redeeming.

The acting was good, and I'm sure many people could relate to living in a nasty apartment and being broke, but that's about it. However, when a film is this unglamorous and unattractive, there had better be a compelling story and dialogue to back it up. There ain't. It just didn't work for me.

Maybe it's because I'm not British (though there are several British comedies I love), or maybe the frame of mind I was in wasn't right. But it's not my responsibility to find a reason to like this film if there's none to be found. I know others like it, and Tracey Ullmann when introducing it on TCM said that it had her "weeping with laughter", but I suspect I won't be the only viewer on whom this films possible charms are lost. (Maybe that's why Ullmann's show never found a U.S. audience if this is her taste.) Well, Withnail fans, I tried. At least give me credit for not turning this off and deleting it from my DVR--as the person with whom I was watching wanted me to. I gave this film every chance, and it gave me nothing back. Two half chuckles at the most, but not one laugh. Sorry.
