It’ll be better than that silly flick, though, because everything’s better with a Scottish accent. And also because this appears to be actually be intended as a comedy, instead of not intended as one — as with Da Vinci Code — but being hilarious anyway. And of course, it’s based on a true story, not a story people merely want to be true.
And oh look! Charlie Cox: I was expecting to see a lot more of him after Stardust, in which he was so charming and so exuded that ineffable movie star It that I was certain he was on the verge of major stardom. What’s happened with that?
Always nice, too, to see Billy Boy and Robert Carlyle in absolutely anything.
