Comedy / Drama (Withnail)
"I" is a paranoid, out of work actor played by Paul McGann, and REG plays Withnail, his eccentric, self-absorbed roommate - also an out of work actor. They live in a squalid bed-sit and the film is set in the last months of 1969.
Needing to "get away" from it all, mainly their drug dealer, rats and unpaid rent, they take a holiday at Uncle Monty's country cottage.
The holiday is a disaster and Monty appears in time to try and get a leg over the very pretty "I". The story is told from "I's" point of view and is hilariously funny.
This film is an absolute must for any REG fan. A cult classic, and the "big break" REG was always waiting for.
Best REG line: Fork It!!
