From the country that brought you Benny Hill ...

Actually, I'd rather watch a Benny Hill marathon, then watch it again, than pay to see yet another of those dreadfully, too cute by whole inspirational flicks about a group of down-on-their-luck Brits. "(M)aybe there's a factory up in the Lake Country that cranks them out like bangers and mash for export to US art houses, where they can displace tougher, worthier fare," writes Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr.

More from his review of "On a Clear Day" ...

... about a plucky little fellow with a dream, and if you've seen "The Full Monty," "Billy Elliot," "Saving Grace," "Brassed Off," "Waking Ned Devine," or "Calendar Girls," you may be wondering if the British film industry has officially begun to make these movies in its sleep.

I wonder if our pal Sheldon (see below) will be checking this one out.
