This British satirical comedy may be a bit of a mess, but since it's based on a Stephen Fry novel, the snappy wit in the dialogue zings with his specific brand of intelligent humour.

It's still a pleasure, and often a joy, to watch the star measuring out and savouring Fry's rich wordplay like fingers of scotch.

Lacking the zeal and comic energy that the material requires, The Hippopotamus feels like a soufflé that has failed to rise, leaving a film that can only be recommended to diehard Allam devotees.

The writing here is sometimes arch and laboured but Allam puts across even the most stilted lines with enormous brio.

This adaptation of Stephen Fry's comic novel relies so heavily on voiceover that it's practically an audiobook.

A towering, at times monumentally good central performance from the character actor Roger Allam stands at the heart of The Hippopotamus, but it is entirely alone.

Brought to the silver screen by director John Jencks, the flavour and indelible, idiosyncratic tone of the author is imbued in this faithful adaptation.

This adaptation of Stephen Fry's novel leans heavily on the elegant profanity of the source material.

An old-fashioned romp through the eccentricities of the upper classes, it's a fun mystery with a nicely filthy mind.

Despite a wonderfully witty voiceover and the bullish playing of a willing ensemble, this bawdy romp consistently stumbles over its more contrived excesses.
