Comedy oddities: The Rise And Rise Of Michael Rimmer

Given that this is a film with a screenplay from Monty Python's John Cleese and Graham Chapman, along with Peter Cook and the director Kevin Billington, and that it stars Cook, Denholm Elliot and Harold Pinter, you would think this would be an enormously well known film even if it wasn't any good. As it happens it's not exactly a classic, and some of the humour is a little broad, but most of the time it is a pleasantly amusing satire and so it's surprising it has largely been forgotten about.
