Absolutely Anything

Monty Python filmmaker Terry Jones (Monty Python and the Holy Grail) directs this sci-fi comedy about a group of aliens (voiced by fellow Pythons Terry Gilliam and John Cleese) who grant a human being the power to do absolutely anything – as a scientific experiment. Co-stars Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead), stand-up comedian Eddie Izzard and the voice of the late Robin Williams.

There is only one thing worse than a bad film. That is a bad film that should have been a great film. Absolutely Anything has, like its premise, galactic comedic potential. It stars Simon Pegg, the hottest thing in British comedy right now, opposite the dazzling Kate Beckinsale. It features the voices of the living members of Monty Python. It enticed Eddie Izzard into a supporting role. And it is likely to go down in history as Robin Williams’ final cinema release. As the voice of a dog. In a dog… of a film.

Pegg works wonders, but you'll wish the concept had been pushed further, that there was more to the Pythons' 'reunion'...

As the film itself states: 'The dog's not so bad. It's the people I can't stand'.

It's not bad so much as lightly feeble...

A flabby misfire full of labored slapstick, broad caricatures and groaningly absurd plot twists.
