Synopsis From Back:
This hilariously sexy, all-star comedy promises to be an entertaining treat you're sure to love! Featuring some of today's biggest comedy favorites-including Carol Burnett, John Ritter, Michael Caine, and Christopher Reeve-Noises Off! is an outrageously funny look at the love, lies and deceit that take place behind the scenes as a group of ridiculously inept stage actors rehearse a Broadway-bound play! Just when members of this chaotic cast finally get their performances right-everything starts going wrong!
I've been watching so many Christmas movies lately that I needed a break, and boy did I get it. I have owned this movie for years and I watch it at least 7 times a year if not more.
For those of you not familiar with it, this is the movie version of the play. The play is about a a group of actors putting on a play, so you get two stories in one, and both are hilarious.
The plot is so complicated (in a good way) that I can't really begin to describe it because my brain is not functioning properly but the basic plot is this; a bunch of second rate actors who have conflicting personalities and loyalties are trying to get through a dress rehearsal. Everything that can go wrong goes wrong; flubbed lines, prop defects, broken hearts, drunk actors, and misunderstandings.
I love this movie and the cast is unbelievable; Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Julie Hagerty, John Ritter, Nicollette Sheridan, Christopher Reeve, Marilu Henner (love her), Mark Linn-Baker, and Denholm Elliott. If you love slapstick, physical, or smartly written comedy you have to see this movie.
