Any fans of the film Withnail & I on here?

I thought it was interesting as George Harrison was a producer of the film. It is also interesting as it is one of the few films that actually feature a fully licensed Beatles song (WMGGW).

My opinion of the film is that it is essentially hilarious and incredibly quotable. It also has an air of Britishness that I can really relate to. What are your opinions?

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Oh, I love "Withnail & I"! So hilarious and depressingg. One of the most quotable movies ever, I agree - it's up there with "The Big Lebowski" and "All About Eve" and "Plan 9 From Outer Space".

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Personally, the most quotable movie is Casablanca, but I haven't seen this one. Guess I need to.

I forget, everyone can edit their own posts afterwards, yes?

I love Withnail. It's a film I could never get tired of watching. Great soundtrack but even better dialogue.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
