Movie Reviews

Absolutely hilarious!

"Nothing beats British humor! There have been few American shows that have made me laugh out loud as much as this one has. I think Coupling was the last show that got belly laughs out of me, and that was a British series as well. The Worst Week of My Life chronicles the seven days before the wedding of Howard (Ben Miller) and Mel (Sarah Alexander). Everyone knows that the week before a wedding could be stressful, but Howard hadn't anticipated how stressful things would get during that week. Everything that could possibly go wrong does, and in his desperate attempt to impress his future parents-in-law (played by Alison Steadman and Geoffrey Whitehead), protect a wedding ring that's a family heirloom, getting stuck with the less than ideal best man, and avoiding a psychotic ex-girlfriend (of sorts), Howard only makes things worse.

As I said earlier, I couldn't stop laughing. These are seven of the funniest episodes I have seen in quite a long time. The way Howard gets himself in one mess after another will have you in stitches. The part about his wanting to impress his in-laws sort of reminded me of Meet the Parents, and Ben Miller reminded me of Ben Stiller (even their names are similar!), but this series is ten times funnier than the aforementioned movie. I remember Sarah Alexander from her role of Susan in Coupling, and even though she had a plain role as Howard's fiancee in this one, it was fun to see her in another show. Alison Steadman made a wonderful performance as Mrs. Bennett in Pride and Prejudice '95 and she impressed me with her comic timing again. And I loved Geoffrey Whitehead's performance! I loved his deadpan expressions when saying something funny. I recognized a few faces in this series, people I'm sure I'd seen before but cannot remember where. Anyway, I love, love, LOVE The Worst Week of My Life. This BBC comedy series has found a special place on my DVD shelf and I shall watch it again and again. I can't wait for the second part of the series to be released on this side of the pond."

"Very few shows make me laugh aloud nowadays, but this one got belly laughs! Just when Howard fixes one mess he somehow gets himself into another."
I wish there were more shows like this!

"This show is, quite simply, very high quality in every respect. Brilliantly written and perfectly cast. The premise is fresh and is laugh out loud comedy at it's best. If there were more shows like this on TV, my DVD collection would be considerably smaller."
