Funny little British movie
“The Parole Officer” is a funny little comedy gem from the UK that has its share of flaws. Occasionally the jokes are just a bit too silly and the movie has a few lengths in the middle. Also, the score seems completely out of place more often than not.
On the plus side, though, the film has got a great cast. Most jokes work because the actors deliver them with such great timing. Nothing needs to be said about Steve Coogan anymore. Everybody knows his talent by now and the man is rightfully on his way to a career in Hollywood. Ben Miller can be seen here, too, before he came to bigger fame with “The Worst Week Of My Life”. He’s great, just like Om Puri, George Steven Waddington and Emma Williams, all of which play a group of ex-criminals who plan to break into a bank to steal evidence that will clear the name of the wrong-fully accused title character (played by Coogan). Lena Headey is another face you might recognize from “300” or the new “Terminator” TV-series. She’s just gorgeous, beautiful and very charming. Omar Sharif makes a prominent cameo and there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance by Simon Pegg – probably the best moment of the entire movie.
So, yeah, “The Parole Officer” is a very enjoyable movie. Not all jokes hit the bullseye, but you’ll laugh more than a few times. I really recommend this movie to everyone who likes classic Heist flicks and/or comedies like “Fletch”.
