Synopsis:
Jefferson Steel (Burt Reynolds) is an ageing Hollywood action hero. He's vain, insecure and out of work. In a final attempt to find Jefferson work, his incompetent LA agent stumbles upon the perfect role playing King Lear at Stratford-upon-Avon. But, Jefferson arrives in the UK to discover that instead of an RSC production, he is booked to tread the boards with an amateur dramatic society in sleepy English village Stratford St John. A clash of cultures with comic complications ensues in this funny and ultimately moving comedy.

Not written for Reynolds? - A Bunch of Amateurs review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
13/05/2009

A good film by Reynolds playing the vain actor desperate to save career moves to Britain to do Lear in Stratford. Alas wrong Stratford and he is stuck with a load of amateurs. What is very evident in this is that Reynolds cannot do Shakespeare he of course is not intended to but sadly I don't think he can and he is not right for this part.Art imitating life. However this has a good cast with some tremendous performances and does have its amusing moments.
