NOTE: THIS FILM IS ...By a customer from SUDBURY , 08 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]NOTE: THIS FILM IS CERTIFICATE PG AND NOT 15 AS STATED IN THE LISTING!
This is a fun and light-hearted production of Wilde's classic play. Some interesting twists and reading between Wilde's lines, but goodness... Lady Bracknell as a showgirl... well really!
Judi Dench is magnificent as always (although she does somewhat self-conciously understate the famous "A Handbag!" line) and the rest of the cast complement each other well.

Excellent filmBy a customer from London , 15 Mar 2009A very nice screen version of Oscar Wilde's play. Good actors, good sens of humor, nice settings. A good film for the whole family.
The Importance of Being EarnestBy a customer from Poole , 05 Jan 2009Much loved play, brilliantly acted, even including Judi Dench's underplayed 'Handbag' exclamation.
The film exposes the empty headedness and stupidity of Wilde's privileged classes so much more than the play.
Is there a genius in the 21st Century who can do the same for the wags and traders?
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I thoroughly enjoyed this retelling of Oscar Wilde's play. All the main actors played their characters convincingly and seemed to be as amused by their roles as I was as a viewer. The costumes and locations were sumptuous and there was a plethora of microscoptic period detail that was exact in each scene. The movie converted very well to the small screen becauseof the intimacy of Wilde's observations expressed through witty dialogue.
