Noises Off...
Under the Stars

Directed by Peter Bogdanovich

Carol Burnett, Michael Caine

 

Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Denholm Elliot and Christopher Reeve are among the stars that drive this funny play-within-a-play farce about a dress rehearsal for an excruciatingly UNfunny bedroom farce entitled Nothing On. Caine is the frustrated, valium popping director, Carol Burnett the fading star, and Denholm Elliott the drunken character actor, while Christopher Reeve is hilariously earnest as the handsome lunk who wants the motivation for his character setting down a bag of groceries explained to him. Perfect casting and timing make this adaptation of a theater classic a pleasure to watch.
