Review:

It seems that you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't enjoy working with Mike Edmonds. Colin Firth, Terry Gillingham, Sue Edwards, and Michael Palin all feature in this documentary and the impression is that they didn't need to be chased to participate - they praise him so highly, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Mike has blackmail material on them all. We are also treated to plenty of screen time with the man himself, revealing a few surprises, such as his alternate career as a DJ and his continued connection to his home of Essex.

This is a film for anyone with a passing interest in British acting, fantasy films, or the man himself. A fond film portrait, like a nice cup of tea, perhaps on a Sunday afternoon with a biscuit. An affectionate chronicle of the film and stage actor who starred in TIME BANDITS, MAID MARION AND HER MERRY MEN, and STAR WARS. / Review by Rebecca Drummond Cribb
