    It would seem to be a somewhat accurate depiction of an interesting age and conveys a lot of atmosphere. The cinematography is excellent. The interactions between the characters are entertaining. The soundtrack is unusual and very good. And Liv Tyler is gorgeous (!).

    I really despise the user reviews on metacritic, especially when this is one of the highest rated. It's just not a fun movie to watch, the comedy is incredibly dry and not funny, there is no real sense of adventure as all the environments are neither impressive or grand, and the acting could use some serious work.

    It doesn't really hang together. And waaay too much style. Pity.

    Lewd, crude and occasionally too brutal to take, it's also gorgeous, heartfelt.

    A cross between a Hogarth painting and an MTV video, Plunkett & Macleane cuts quite a swath.
