I rated Mindhorn 5/10


Just as you’d expect. A great idea rendered amusing by being executed.

There are some edgily real things portrayed among the obvious humour and farce. Mindhorn’s faded acting career, strange confidence, and boorishness are persuasive.

At times the characters are oddly real. Windjammer played by Steve coogan is credible and obnoxious. And Simon farnaby is comical throughout. But then other parts are just like they’re out of the TV shows the movie parodies.

Amusing but its parody/reality mashup didn’t hit the mark consistently enough for me to really enjoy the whole thing. There are some very funny moments that redeem some of the more awkward bits.

Made for TV.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
