It all hinges on Simon Pegg, and for me, he makes it work. _A Fantastic Fear of Everything_ will not be for everyone, indeed, it’s darker than even your average horror comedy, but I am happy to have seen it.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Bad watch, probably won’t watch again, and can’t recommend unless you’re ona Simon Pegg binge or an eccentric writer.
I like Simon Pegg, but this doesn’t feel like one of his movies, and maybe that was the point.
It has an interesting premise, and maybe I wasn’t in the right frame of mind for the movie, but I don’t find the paranoia and mental afflictions of the character funny: I don’t even feel they’re presented as jokes.
There is some heavily worked situational comedy, but the movie doesn’t feel like a comedy itself.
Long story short: it was kind of a depressing watch with some mildy interesting psychology to it and rather little criminology.
Amusing in places.
I went to see A Fantastic Fear of Everything with no expectations as I hadn’t read any reviews and had been underwhelmed by a couple of Simon Pegg’s recent efforts. To use a crude rating system i’d say that this was marginally better than Paul and a lot better than Burke & Hare.
I liked the originality of the story and the journey the character took through the movie. It was frequently amusing without ever getting to real laugh-out-loud comedy levels. Silly humour mixed in with quite clever stuff. I’m not sure how it’ll go down outside of the U.K. and indeed I felt that it was more suited to a television rather than big- screen format. It’s the sort of film I think you could really appreciate if you put it on after coming home completely inebriated from the pub, although you’d probably have to shave 10-15 minutes off the running time in order to stay awake till the end.
Here’s a bit of advice: Cult films are usually made accidentally. Something like Withnail And I or Eraserhead were not designed to be quoted or referenced decades later, but thanks to a combination of public affection and quirkiness, that’s exactly how its turned out. If on the other hand, you TRY to make your movie as a crazy and as random as possible to give it distinction, you usually all goes tits-up and the ends up with a bit of a mess. Exhibit A: This.
Now I don’t doubt that Simon Pegg made it with the best of intentions, and there is SOME truly inspired stuff here that made me giggle no end. But there are also plenty of feeble jokes that not even a playschooler would laugh at, and a narrative which is all rather tragic. And Pegg’s character is such a shrill worrywart who does such stupid things, he becomes a figure of hate rather than a ‘hero’ to sympathise with… which isn’t good considering he’s the sole person on screen most of the time…
A curate’s egg then. (Gosh, I’ve been waiting to use that term for AGES, man… Don’t I sound bright?) 5/10
