The best film of all time. If not, then the best British film of all time. If not, then just my fave film of all time.

Imagine if you could interpret your fave movie lines as a sweet or candy bar. Well, for me, Withnail and I is the whole sweet shop (Or goody shop as we say in 'ull). Every line is a gem.

I hope it's okay to post the whole film here. If not please delete.

If you know it or watch it, you'll know or soon find our that alongside Auf Pet, it's the most quoted film/TV media of all time.

For "Ah, bollocks man!" read "Monty, you terrible c***!"

For "Fish n chips, that's what I fancy now, real English fish n chips" read "I demand something's flesh!"

And for every "I'm glad you's not here" there's a "Here, hare, here" to be had.

But what could equal "She don't know how much i'm sending home. Unless by some amazing coincidence she has access to my passbook for the West Bromwich and District Building Society."

Why, "Followed by yet another anecdote about his 'sensitive' crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets...." of course ;)

I love this film as much as Auf Pet. I look forward to hearing your thoughts :)

Aye, glad you thought it OK.

Not to all tastes, but then again, what is? :)
