Would you make Withnail & i 2?
30 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Like everyone else, I loved the original, who didn't? Maybe my mum. Which is exactly the idea of rock n roll. It was a cultural master piece, the music, fashion, the poster. Being a film poster designer at the time we were all in ore or how ground breaking & cool that poster was.

This is by no means a bad film. I just think it shouldn't have been made.

The constant nostalgia references are tedious. Begbie's character is a total parody, so much so that I cringed when ever he was on screen.

The soundtrack was easily forgettable too. And why oh why did they have to keep playing remixes of the old tracks? Again, tedious.

As for the choose speech, a total cringe festival.

They should have made more of the brothel idea.

Some films are best left as master pieces. This should have been left to the one film
