Burke And Hare is a comedic take on the true story of the Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis). These two Irish entrepreneurs, spurred on by a chance meeting with a gorgeous actress (Isla Fisher), discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.
I do love history and i found this film entertaining and packed full of british stars they even squeezed Ronnie Corbet in. Well i new they were grave robbers so it wasn't a secret but i found myself chuckling away and found it very entertaining throughout maybe about ten minutes too long but that might be my age.
So give it a go id say if you like english made films with a good cast and two loveable rogue characters you'll enjoy.
