The Importance of Being Earnest

Two young gentlemen living in 1890's England have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. Jack Worthing (Colin Firth) has invented a brother, Earnest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind to visit the ravishing Gwendolyn (Frances O'Connor). Algy Montcrieff (Rupert Everett) decided to take the name 'Earnest' when visiting Worthing's young and beautiful ward, Cecily (Reese Witherspoon) at the country manor. Things start to go awry when they end up together in country and their deceptions are discovered - threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits. (Written by Scorpiessa imdb)

Based on an Oscar Wilde novel.

  1. Of the many filmed versions of The Importance of Being Ernest, this one is the worst. Apparently the director tried to turn a comedy into a drama by removing all the witty lines from the script, or having the actors deliver them without comic timing. The result is rather mean-spirited and unpleasant.
