Absolutely Anything review

Simon Pegg cannot save this bleak comedy, which looks and feels as if it was made in the mid-80s.

Jonathan Romney, The Observer, 16th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

Plot points are abandoned regularly as the story takes turns that are nonsensical, and throughout there's a sense that Terry Jones and co-writer Gavin Scott didn't know where to go once the main premise is established.

James Luxford, Radio Times, 14th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

A real disappointment, Absolutely Anything brims with talent and potential, but squanders it on a parade of safe, unfunny, paint-by-numbers clich├ęs.

John Nugent, Sky, 14th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

Absolutely Anything, which stars Simon Pegg as a schoolteacher who receives limitless power from alien beings, is undoubtedly the worst thing he's done, and certainly one of the worst movies yet made. Zero stars.

Kevin Maher, The Times, 14th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

Based off a script that's been knocking around for some years, Absolutely Anything feels like a half-baked Python sketch strung out and bludgeoned into anti-laugh oblivion.

Absolutely Anything review - cheap and cheerless

Simon Pegg plays a teacher endowed with godlike powers and Robin Williams, in his final film role, supplies the voice of a dog. But it's far from funny.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 14th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

Absolutely Anything continues on an unwanted trend for Simon Pegg, of making mediocre British comedies, far removed from the ingenuity of his earlier work.

Stefan Pape, Hey U Guys, 13th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review: 'lightly feeble'

Not even a Monty Python reunion of sorts can save Simon Pegg's sci-fi comedy from mediocrity.

Robbie Collin, The Telegraph, 13th August 2015

Absolutely Anything review

Terry Jones could have done absolutely anything with this high-concept set-up but chose to go down the romantic comedy route. Which would be fine if the jokes were better, but they aren't. The result is a loosely knitted together series of vignettes, some of which raise titters, but the majority of which elicit groans.

Simon Pegg filmed with a sausage stuck up his nose

The actor bonded with his canine sidekick in the film by being "the guy with the sausage on his face". Here's an exclusive interview with Pegg about this intriguing acting method...
