I tried laugh....

I've watched this movie in 2.000 at this time l gave a low rating on my book of this silly comedy,yesterday l found this title in an outlet's DVD with cheap price,so l decided to take it but watching again l still finding a forced situation...some funny jokes only,very similar Pink Panther's comedies,indeed not Bill Murray's best works!!!

Resune:

First watch: 2.000 / How many: 2 / Source: Cable-TV-DVD / Rating: 6

Very Entertaining

This is a very enjoyable and funny movie that is what I call an "easy watcher" that you don't have to invest too much into, you just have to kick back and get ready to laugh. It's a simple story but Bill Murray is brilliant as pretty much always he is, and this movie is a gem of a film that I think is one of the most underrated comedies of its era.

Bill Murray in "The Man Who Knew Too Little" gives us that perfect no-brainer movie everyone in the family should love. Murray stars as a bumbling, clueless American who visits his brother in London on his birthday - unfortunately he's such a buffoon who embarrasses his brother in front of his associates that he is gotten rid of by the brother who "treats" him to a live gaming/theatre event where he will be playing a spy. He's teamed up with an obviously stereo-typically gorgeous female co-spy he hits the town and gets to work, playing it up as a super-spy. Soon he's killing enemy agents left and right.

This is a very physical comedy and Murray shines, and it's really just a very silly and completely predictable script but it never fails to deliver laughs which is what this kind of movie is all about. Along with Quick Change this is a Bill Murray comedy masterpiece that deserves much more credit.

The Screenwriter Who Knew Nothing.

The Man Who Knew Too Little (1997): Dir: Jon Amiel / Cast: Bill Murray, Joanne Whalley, Peter Gallagher, Alfred Molina, Richard Wilson: Disappointing spoof of spy movies featuring a man totally unaware of the happenings around him. Bill Murray arrives in London to visit his brother but is introduced to a rare theatre experience. The participants will step into a phone booth where they will receive a call then he literally becomes involved in an act. He believes that he is to play a detective and that those around him are actors. Interesting concept falls into formula until arriving at a nonsense conclusion. Story is just a series of happenings in consistency. Odd choice for director Jon Amiel whose previous film was the dark thriller Copycat. Murray is often hilarious as the guy not quite in on the joke, and he is the one element in the film that holds strong. Supporting roles are not so interesting and often come off as buffoonish. Joanne Whalley as the mysterious woman is a waste because we are never really sure what her mission is to begin with. Frankly, she is nothing more than a potential romantic tease here. Peter Gallagher as Murray's brother overacts. He is basically there to entertain dinner guests and remain out of the picture. Other characters are about as useless as the screenwriter who failed to followup a worthy concept with something worthwhile. It is a satires of spy films that misses by much. Score: 5 ½ / 10
