Noises Off

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Noises Off - 5 out of 5

A terrific little gem that I never knew existed until a friend of mine turned me onto it. Wonderfully writing and witty with an all star cast that consists of the likes of Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Denholm Elliott (RIP), Julie Hagerty, Marilu Henner, Christopher Reeve (RIP), John Ritter (RIP) and Nicollette Sheridan--to name just a few. All of these actors come together, portraying unbelievably funny characters in chaotic and hectic scenes that throws the comedy at you rapid-fire. Brilliantly choreographed scenes that seem like a mixture of a wild dance or a perfected Rube Goldberg device play out before your eyes as the story of a small theater group attempt to juggle their personal lives and get the story right on the play that they are performing. These scenes are long and offer up little cuts as each actor dances around the scene hitting their marks perfectly and, in more than one occasion, caused my jaw to drop in amazement over the mastery of it all. All-in-all and flat out, this movie is just brilliant in its delivery and is one HELL of an entertaining movie.
