Fleabag is the story of four people who spend a Saturday night drinking, gambling and having sex, but in this case it is at the Fleabag. At Fleabag, there are no boundaries. The theatre company is absolutely free and the audience can do what they want to do, and there is no safety and security. They also have no qualms about openly using sex as a way of achieving success. There are no rules to the audience and they don't seem to care about any of the rules. One of the most enjoyable things about this film is the variety of things that the characters do. In some cases they break the law, but other times they don't care. The film is full of surprises and you never know what is going to happen next. It is also full of humour and it is always interesting to see who is going to end up with who. It is also full of scenes that make you think and make you laugh. The main character Charlie is a rich man who is jealous of the free women. At the Fleabag he meets a woman who wants to be a playwright, and she is the one who gets to write the play. Charlie is very jealous of her and is ready to kill her. This scene is hilarious and makes you think that Charlie is a crazy person. But, he is not and he doesn't kill her. The other two people who are at the Fleabag are Eleanor and Danny. Danny is an accountant and wants to be an artist, but is frustrated because he does not have enough money to support a good artist. Eleanor is a writer and she is dissatisfied with her life. She is working for a magazine but the magazine does not seem to like her. She is still lonely and she wants to get rid of her own body. The Fleabag is filled with lots of beautiful women and they are all extremely attractive. This is a fun movie to watch, it is funny, it is smart and it is exciting. I think that if you like lesbian sex comedies or love movies with lots of sexuality, Fleabag is a movie that you should definitely check out. This film has many different types of scenes, all of them are hilarious. I recommend this film to anyone who likes lesbian sex comedies, movies with lots of sexuality and very funny scenes.

A great watch. A really good one for those who have an interest in the subject of sex addiction. It is not the ultimate statement but it shows you that you do not have to be Christian to be in a relationship of addiction, we all have a dependency that is different from the others. The performances of most of the actors in this film is superb, they all play their parts very well. The director also has done a great job and has made a very touching and truthful film. It is a very good watch.

In 1992, the "Fleabag" (the film, not the book) by the Canadian Stephen Spinella and Don McKellar, got rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, and became a New York Times bestseller. Since then, there have been several movies about the Fleabag, but none have managed to capture the wide-spread affection the novel has for the characters, and none has ever been quite as intimate as this. This is definitely one of those movies. It's the story of an upper-middle class family that lives in the woods, and their friendship and romance with an American couple, and their struggles with the American life. The director is Peter Hyams, and the writer is the novelist Stephen Spinella. It's an unexpected adaptation of a novel about friendship and the quiet, semi-prodigal lives of people in the rich and poor world. The author has said that the director had to find a way to make this story feel like it could happen to real people, and that's what he did. The movie has a fairly simple story, and a few different parts that are funny, but that's really what it is. It's a movie that can be enjoyed by adults and kids, but more importantly, it's a movie that you can tell your kids about, and maybe even be like them. It's an intelligent movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

The script is brilliant, the music is brilliant. After all the years of doing the British stage version, I was very much looking forward to this. I did not like the lyrics and the words, as they seemed to say too much, but the score and the singing was very much above par. The cast is superb. It was such a joy to see more variety than we have had in a while. A very good film.

One of the best comedy of the year. Every joke is funny, it's just a pleasure to watch. It's definitely a work of genius and it will be a work of real genius in my life time. The director has done a great job in writing the characters and in directing the jokes. This is one of the best comedies of the year and you can't miss this one!

I found this movie to be excellent and funny. The comedy is fresh and original. The performances are very good. All the characters were played extremely well. The plot is one that you will definitely enjoy and I feel this movie is a definite 10 from me. It is definitely worth watching.

I had never heard of this before I went to see the film. I was slightly skeptical but was pleasantly surprised. In my opinion, this is a classic of it's genre and it was a breath of fresh air. This movie is directed and performed superbly. The actors are all believable and to see a young child playing a child in a story this complex is worth the price of admission. The cast is just perfect. Every scene and every emotion is conveyed perfectly. I thought the end of the film was very sad and touching. I think the idea of having a story about the love of a child was very moving. It's a fantastic idea and I would recommend this to any film fan.

Just to summarize the plot, Fleabag is a British film that stars Olivia Hussey as Lenny, an aspiring singer. She's known as an "innocent, giddy, chipper girl". But when the world changes around her and her business falls through, she is sent to America. Lenny discovers that everything she's ever known is a lie, and she must go back to England and start over. In the words of Olivia, "I'm a woman now, and I want to be Lenny". So she tries to change, while her rival's music manager, Jonathan, tries to make her stay the same. The movie is loosely based on the books by Emma Bunton. It's an entertaining movie that was too funny and too sincere to be fake. There's not much to complain about.

My husband and I loved this show. We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more, we cried some more. It was great. My husband was disappointed that the movie version did not do as well as the original. But, the movie was so funny and very true to life. The actors really pulled off their characters. I've never seen the show before so I can't compare, but I did see the movie with my husband. I will definitely be looking for the rest of the cast when it comes out on DVD.

I saw this on DVD on the way home from work today and I loved it. Some of the scenes in the DVD were so funny that I actually looked over to the shelf and grabbed the DVD before I forgot it was there. I think the highlight of the movie was the scene when Belfort tries to sell his book to a big publisher. He gives a ridiculous speech about how his book is the most important book in the world and the publisher is sold out. However, Belfort has a hidden agenda and is going to buy the publishers. So he's kind of a dupe. And I was a bit confused when he doesn't tell the publisher what he's really doing with the book. But it's worth a look. I like how the movie shows some of the comedy and tragedy of living in the world of the rich and famous. It's sad and funny at the same time.

I loved the film, it was hilarious, and the film itself was cleverly directed. However, I couldn't figure out how Fleabag worked so well with the "non-fictional" material, because it wasn't funny. I couldn't figure out why all of the characters and characters in the film were so, so stupid. The characters weren't likable, and I couldn't connect with them. It didn't work well with the real life "fictional" material. In some ways, I would have preferred a documentary on the Fleabag situation, instead of this. This film had the potential to be great, but it wasn't great.

This is a fantastic film. The cast is superb, the songs are perfect and the production values are really very good. The film is really well made. If you want to see an epic comedy with loads of humour, like the original Broadway version, you really must see this. It is a great tribute to the original producers of the play. It really is a real shame that the film didn't get the recognition it deserved. I really hope it gets the same amount of love it deserves. I really recommend this film.

this was the last time i watched a movie before i have to leave the country. The film opens in time about 6 months after the break up of a couple. After that, the movie focuses on 2 people who go to a hotel in the middle of nowhere. The characters are portrayed very realistic and as real as they can get. I loved the whole storyline, it kept me on my seat for two hours. The whole premise of the film, well at least from my point of view, was not very original, but that is not the point of this movie. This movie is just a great movie, to be enjoyed by everybody. I give it a 9 out of 10.

Like the book Fleabag, the movie is both different and so much more. The movie shows the bizarre atmosphere and psychological dark side of the theatre world and of life in general. The dialogue is beautifully written and the characterisations are great. The performances are quite brilliant and the plot is truly entertaining. This is definitely a movie to watch. The production design is simply stunning. The actors look really good and the production design is totally convincing. It really is a nice, good looking movie. Overall, it is a very good movie. I think that anyone would be able to enjoy it. If you liked the book, you will surely enjoy the movie. However, it is not a movie for the families. But if you liked the book, you'll enjoy the movie. The movie is completely different to the book and it is also different to the book. It is not about being too sure about the characters, but rather about the characters themselves. The movie does not try to put a moral or an ethical side to the whole thing. But it does tell a very funny and a very weird story. My vote is nine. Title (Brazil): 'Ame de Veitos' ('The Madmen')

This is a brilliant film, full of a lot of humour, but it's very clever, too. It tells us about the social class of the people in a town and how they live their lives. We learn about the blue collar workers, and the big bosses who give them a hard time and then manage to be silent, yet still enjoy their work. We also learn about the red-neckers, and how they use their power to get the best deal. The problem is, as with all movie-companies, the whole plot is not developed very well. The reason is that they have to add in some things to make the film interesting. The plot has some of the most sophisticated set-ups in cinema history. When we first see the blue collar workers, they are just very poor. There is no family, no money, no food. Then we find out that there are many red-neckers who live in the same area, and who help the blue-collar workers. In addition, we find out that there is a whole range of sub-human characters who make up the town, and are either red-neckers, or yellow-collar workers. However, these characters are not very much developed, and we do not really know how they relate to each other. The great thing about the movie is that they have developed a lot of the sub-human characters, and I think it was a good decision. This shows that the actors are quite good, but at the same time we do not have a lot of idea of what they are like. Also, the movie has many great laughs, and the action is full of adrenaline. We can tell that the actors are very interested in the characters, and there is nothing wrong in that. Also, it is a really clever idea to add a sub-human character into the movie, and they make them very real. We have a killer who kills people for fun. We have a guy who kills for money. We have a black man who kills for money. We have a man who murders for the love of the other, and we have a woman who murders for money. There are some moments where the actors are really good, like the scene where the guy who kills for money tells a funny story. The problem is that sometimes the plot is not very deep, and the jokes are not that funny. If you are really patient, and like movies that are good and have great actors, you will enjoy this movie. It's a good movie, and worth seeing.

Marlene Love (Robin Williams) is the love-struck headmistress of a school for the deaf and blind. Her only job is to guide students to the bathrooms. Marlene is loving and noble but seems very awkward and distant. She works in a newspaper office where she is called "The Bee" by an editor. In her first encounter with a man she just met, she lets him in to see her. When he takes a liking to her, Marlene is in shock. The audience becomes so excited and wowed by Marlene's speech to him and the way she responds to him. What a delightful turn Marlene is in this light-hearted comedy about love, friendship and being human. Williams is fantastic as the main character and the supporting cast is perfect. I laughed so hard in this movie and it was great to see it in 3D. I'm a big fan of Robin Williams and this was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. I recommend this film to everyone.

I'm a big fan of David Mitchell and I thought this was a great show. The acting was brilliant. As well as the dancing and the story line. It's a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon and it's also a good way to forget your worries.

Fleabag is a brilliant film, a wonderfully funny look at the lives of middle aged people. It manages to pull the viewer in, it is an experience, a magical and funny movie. The performances by both cast and crew are superb, it really feels like you're right there in the middle of the movie, you feel like you are there with the characters and you can't help but laugh. The humour is a mix of simple yet clever lines that are cleverly inserted into the movie, like "we don't have to get to know each other to make a great relationship" or "I'll be your nurse, I know how to care for people". This movie is a brilliant achievement and a great way to spend a few hours. It's one of the most clever and entertaining movies I have seen in a while. And the best part is that you get to see great performances from some of the stars of the movie. Big kudos to both Lee and Bradley for the movie, and big kudos to the writers and producers for making such a movie.

There are a few times when you feel like you're watching a "flick" from "The New York Times" instead of a "film" and when you do, you'll either be laughing or looking around and saying "WHY DID YOU EVEN SEE THAT, WHY WASN'T THIS A REVIEW, WHY WASN'T THIS FILM A REVIEW?" This movie will either remind you of "The Sound of Music" or a stage play. It's hard to say. It's like "Moonlight" and "Toni Erdmann" but without the social commentary. It's almost like "Hugo" but without the absurdist and satirical commentary. Maybe because I was raised on Woody Allen and "Being There", I can understand and appreciate the ironic tone of this film. Or maybe I didn't need it, because I liked it. For me, this was one of the best films I've seen in the last year. It's not a perfect film. I can't say the same for most "film" with Woody Allen in it. But it's definitely a great film, with amazing performances and a very clever and funny script. And also, for those who are looking for a film with social commentary, this film is an equal to "The Sound of Music" and "Shakespeare in Love". If you're looking for a movie with social commentary, this is the film for you. If you're looking for a movie with social commentary, I highly recommend "The New York Times" and "Hugo".

I will start by saying that this was a great film. However, it's too bad that it wasn't released on the big screen in the United States. I don't know what the reasons are, but I've been to America and this film is only available in a very small number of theaters. But, it's a great film. I think it's the best film I've ever seen. One of the best British films I've ever seen. I think it's the best British film ever. Anyway, I would highly recommend it. It's really good.

I was about to see the Fleabag in Manchester, when it came on TV and I had to go and see it, so I just made an appointment. I have to say I loved it. It was very funny and had a good cast. I thought the cast was good, it was more than I expected. It was a good mix of comedies and drama. I liked it better than The League Of Gentlemen, I liked it more than Get Carter, I liked it better than The Shaggy Dog. I think it was better than The League Of Gentlemen. I also liked the story. It was good. I would recommend it to anyone.

I think Fleabag is one of the funniest films I have ever seen. It is filled with the usual corky and unrealistic characters, but it manages to strike a cord in me as being honest and honest about the situations. The storyline is extremely funny and creative, with a smart and well-balanced comedy. The actors, despite their cliché characters, play their parts brilliantly, with an entertaining and positive tone to the film. I also think it is very realistic, and shows that everyone is human. The only downside is that I don't think the film is ever overly long. It's funny, it's full of good lines, it is full of happy moments, and it doesn't drag. I think the length of the film is just right. Overall, I think Fleabag is a masterpiece. I would recommend it to anyone.
