Seriously funny

If you need a good laugh watch this movie! Everybody in this movie was so funny. The main character is pathetic at first but you learn to laugh at him and like him. The characters in this movie were so funny, great job on the script. If you are a serious person you probably won't like it as it is just for laughs and nothing serious. I loved this movie but I like to laugh.

Fun, Funny and Fantastically enjoyable.

Absolutely Anything isn't the kind of film that would win awards, nor will it come in on the top 100 films of all time, but that's not its goal; it is a fun film with a lot of acting talent including Robin Williams in his final role before his untimely death and the members of Monty Python in voice over roles.

Simon Pegg is a likable guy surviving on a teachers salary as he tries to write a novel and trying to woo the girl of his dreams, and failing miserably but then fate... or in this case aliens throws him a hand.

This movie was made to be just a bit of fun, it's not trying to rewrite the art of film making and it also doesn't rely on the over top, gross out humour that we've become accustomed to lately.

I found each joke landed well, and gave full belly laughs many times throughout the film. It wasn't offensive or rude and was rife with British humour.

Absolutely Anything deserves so much higher ratings, it is a fun way to spend 1.25 hours.

Amusing, but not really funny.

'ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A British sci-fi comedy which reunites all of the living Monty Python members, for the first time since 1983's 'MONTY PYTHON'S THE MEANING OF LIFE'. It was directed by Monty Python actor Terry Jones (who's also directed or co-directed the other Monty Python movies) and it was written by Jones and Gavin Scott. The film stars Simon Pegg, as an average human guy that's chosen at random, by a galactic council of aliens, to be given the powers to do absolutely anything he wants. The powers given are a test, by the aliens, to decide whether or not Earth should be destroyed, or if it's inhabitants should be allowed into the galactic council or not. The film is also notable for being Robin Williams' last film role (as the voice of a dog). The movie also costars Kate Beckinsale, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Rob Riggle, Eddie Izzard, and the additional voices of Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese and Eric Idle (the Monty Python cast). It's received mostly negative reviews from critics, and it only received a very limited indie theatrical run in theaters. I found it to be pretty poorly executed, which is a shame considering all of the talent involved.

A group of four aliens, which call themselves the 'galactic council', find a space probe containing information about Earth (and the human race). They use this information to debate whether they should destroy Earth, or allow humans into their elite council. According to the council's rules they must choose an earthling at random, who will be given powers to do whatever they want (as a test), and if they use the powers for good than humanity will be saved. They randomly choose a lonely secondary school teacher, named Neil Clarke (Pegg), for their test. He of course knows nothing about how to deal with his sudden gift, and he puts the entire planet in jeopardy.

The movie is amusing, but it's not really funny. It tries to be somewhat emotional, and insightful at times, but it fails at these elements as well. Pegg gives it his all though, in the lead, but the material just doesn't work at all. It's a good concept for a silly sci-fi comedy, but it's just a little too silly and not thought through enough (in my opinion).
