Synopsis:
London. The '60s. Two unemployed actors-acerbic, elegantly wasted Withnail (Richard E. Grant) and the anxiety-ridden "I" (Paul McGann) - drown their frustrations in booze, pills and lighter fluid. When Withnails's Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) offers his cottage, they escape the squalor of their flat for a week in the country, but soon realise they've gone on holiday by mistake when their wits - and friendship - are sorely tested by violent downpours, less-than-hospitable locals and empty cupboards.

Cult of Withnail - Withnail and I review by Cherry

Spoiler Alert
02/10/2006

I've seen this cult classic before but I wanted to get it out again. It gets better the more you know it. Everyone knows someone who is like, or has lived like Withnail, and although the film is unpolished and looks slightly dated, that is part of the charm. One you either love or hate, but if you think student squalour has a decadent appeal, get this one out!

Probably , the best film ever made - Withnail and I review by CP Customer

I moved to London in the late 80s and this bears a close resemblance. Funny, Classic, and a snap-shot of a lost sensibility that made this country so fertile.

Yet the Byron and Shelley characters could easily be from any of the last few hundred years. Out of work actors have rarely looked more romantic.

So dense and beautiful you can enjoy it time and time again, and The Crow has to be the best pub in the world.

I'm not sure how else to report the DVD was a bit "sticky", eg finishing about 10 minutes before the end. Had to retry it a couple of times before completing. Worth it to see how it all panned out for the characters
