This hilariously sexy, all-star comedy promises to be an entertaining treat you're sure to love! Featuring some of today's biggest comedy favorites, including Carol Burnett (TV's THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW), John Ritter (BAD SANTA), Michael Caine (THE CIDER HOUSE RULES), and Christopher Reeve (SUPERMAN) -- NOISES OFF! is an outrageously funny look at the love, lies, and deceit that take place behind the scenes as a group of ridiculously inept stage actors rehearse a Broadway-bound play! Just when members of this chaotic cast finally get their performances right, everything starts going wrong!

By Michael Meredith VINE VOICE on July 23, 2003
Format: VHS Tape
Noises Off is a treasure of a movie buried in the comedy section of the video store. And after viewing it as a chance discovery, I would rank it as one of the funniest movies I�ve ever seen � bar none! There is no message, no lingering camera work and precious little plot actually, but the sight gags and interaction of the characters make this movie an absolute laugh riot.
The premise of this film deals with the rehearsals and pre-Broadway tour of a play that aspires to be a classic British sex farce. Michael Caine plays the beleaguered director, with Julie Hagerty as his stage manager, trying to corral a collection of stage and movie actors on both sides of the career loop. Carol Burnett, John Ritter, Christopher Reeve, Denholm Elliott, Marilu Henner and Nicolette Sheridan make up the onstage ensemble, with the able support of Mark Linn-Baker. Throughout early rehearsals and performances the cast conspires with and against each other in matters of romance, revenge and profession expression � all to hilarious effect.
It all culminates in a fateful performance that we view/hear primarily from backstage as conflicts of love and stage presence boil over in mid-show. It just might be the funniest thing ever filmed that didn�t involve the genius of Mel Brooks.

In 1992, Peter Bogdanovich directed a hilarious comedy called "Noises Off...", which was based upon a play that was written by Michael Frayn. (Peter Bogdanovich also directed "What's Up Doc" in 1972, "Paper Moon" in 1973 and "Mask" in 1985.) Starring a wonderful cast, "Noises Off..." is about a troop of actors preparing to perform a play on a national circuit that is under the direction of Lloyd Fellowes (Michael Caine) and features an actress named Dotty Otley (Carol Burnett). She includes a long-time friend, Selsdon Molbray (Denholm Elliott, 1922-1992), as part of her cast; but must contend with his alcoholism. Also included in her acting troop are Gary Lejeune (John Ritter, 1948-2003), Brooke Ashton (Nicolette Sheridan), Frederick 'Freddy' Dallas (Christopher Reeve), Belinda Blair (Marilu Henner), stage manager Poppy Taylor (Julie Hagerty) and prop manager Tim Allgood (Mark Linn-Baker), who must also be a stand-in actor if any of the other actors cannot perform. The play that they intend to perform takes place in a rural English country estate and opens with Dotty portraying a cantankerous housekeeper named Mrs. Clackett, who has a taste for sardines. Gary and Brooke enter next and portray an attorney named Roger Tramplemain and his assistant Vicki. They have come on behalf of the law firm representing the estate's owners, Philip & Flavia Brent, who are portrayed by Freddy and Belinda and who are supposed to be out of town. Thrown into this mix is Selsdon's character: a petty thief. Over the course of the play's performances, various interactions between the actors, managers and Lloyd begin to have a negative impact upon the play's execution with hilarious results.Read more ›

I read the play first last year, without knowing anything about it, and fell in love with it.

I then found out that a movie had been made, so I immediately got it and watched it - and not just any movie, but a movie with a cast of ALL brilliant A-level actors: Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, the terribly under-rated John Ritter, and others.

Enjoy the movie for its rare assemblage of so much raw talent in one movie.

Enjoy it for the brilliantly executed acting, gags, dialogue, and pratfalls.

But mostly, enjoy it because it is a wicked gut-wrenchingly hilarious and brilliantly clever romp.

One of the funniest plays (and movies) I have ever witnessed, with a humor that increases exponentially in the third act to the point that I was almost unable to breath from laughing so much.

Movies like this make me pine for the days when studios would assemble the world's best talents into one movie and give us a truly special experience. Watching a play or a movie in which EVERY actor is top notch and on top form is a remarkable joy, one of those rare experiences that makes life worth living, and this movie is one of them.

It also make me pine for the days when John Ritter was still alive, and regret that he was so rarely given a chance to show the world his true capability as an actor and as a comedic actor. This is perhaps his best performance. If you are a John Ritter fan like me, this is your movie. (And if you are a Christopher Reeve fan, this is one of his finest performances, and you'll see how much his talent was wasted on the Superman movies).

So the film was out of print for a while and now it's come back into print. I couldn't wait to get the DVD of it, because I figured with all the great performances in the movie, there had to be some fantastic special features/outtakes/commentary/whatever.

What did they include with this DVD? NOTHING! Spanish language subtitles....Wow!

It's such a terrific film, it's a shame that the studio couldn't be bothered to make a decent presentation of it on DVD.
