An image from Absolutely Anything

Absolutely Anything is set on a world like our own, where loser Neil Clarke (Simon Pegg) is going about his day-to-day activities, little knowing that his life is about to change. A group of passing aliens (voiced by the surviving members of the Monty Python team) decide to confer a human being with the power to do absolutely anything, as an experiment to observe and to judge the human race, and Neil is the recipient. Initially content to use his powers for personal gain and for fun, Neil soon realises his gift has the potential to do so much more. Although the premise is very reminiscent of Bruce Almighty (which is no terrible thing), this film offers a different glance, using a more likeable leading man and a dirtier sense of humour to offer an altogether funnier experience. This is aided by the incredible supporting cast, pretty much a who’s who of British talent and, in his final film performance, Robin Williams as Neil’s dog, Dennis. Absurdly silly but with a good amount of heart, Absolutely Anything is a light-hearted comedy caper. It won’t be winning any Oscars, but if you’re after a laugh, this is the film for you.
