Critic Consensus: Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann prove irresistibly hilarious as two misanthropic slackers in Withnail and I, a biting examination of artists living on the fringes of prosperity and good taste.

Critic Reviews for Withnail and I
It's much funnier, and sadder, watched stone-cold sober.
Set in 1969 England, it portrays the last throes of a friendship mirroring the seedy demise of the hippie period, delivering some comic gems along the way.
It is at once a coming-of-age comedy and a fond farewell to an era.
A modern classic? A brilliant vignette of a certain time and attitudes? A self-indulgent jeu d'esprit? One thing is certain: Richard E. Grant touched greatness.
A biting script from writer-director Bruce Robinson and performances from Richard E Grant and Paul McGann as two 'resting' actors, Withnail and 'I', that neither has surpassed.
Audience Reviews for Withnail and I
What elevates this British comedy above being a mere series of funny situations is Richard E. Grant, who embraces his role with a hilarious performance and makes this a hysterical film full of memorable lines and moments, even if some of the gags lack a proper punch line.
Utter hogwash from start to finish.
Hilarious performances from Richard E. Grant, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown.
