Synopsis:
Funded entirely by his own fans, cult music legend John Otway stars in his critically-acclaimed movie of how failure has kept him famous for over 35 years! Following a sell-out theatrical in 2013, 'Otway - The Movie' was voted by Guardian readers as the second best film of 2013 - losing out narrowly to Gravity! Having become an overnight sensation on The Old Grey Whistle Test when he jumped off an amplifier and landed on his testicles, John Otway entered the Top 10 with Really Free but had to wait 25 years for his next hit.
In the greatest example of how to be a famous failure, John Otway has written two autobiographies, been voted the Nation's 7th favourite lyricist by the BBC, and now stars in his own brilliant movie!

Only one John Ott - Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie review by NC

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2016

Remember seeing Ott and wild willie on Whistle Test. Actually met him at the Robin a few years ago for a pint. Still doing his mad stage thing with a step ladder.

Actually great bloke, and genuinely still switched on after all these years.

For me was a great film, but i am biased i expect.

An AWFUL documentary about an utterly talentless attention-seeking irritating hasbeen showoff. - Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie review by PV

Spoiler Alert

This film is as AWFUL as the ever-irritation attention-seeking talent-free-zone called John Otway.

It actually makes me really angry, because genuinely talented musicians and singers get no success or publicity because unfunny prats like this has-been or never-was clog up the airwaves.

If you find the class clown at the office who comes to the Christmas part in fancy dress funny, or find some annoying unlike with a light up spinning bow tie funny, or fine other talentless show-offs funny (like Frank Zappa, Freddie Starr et al), then no doubt you will find this hilarious.

I just found it crass and annoying. I'd rather pay not to have watched it.
