Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 05/20/1995
"...FUNNY BONES is provocative entertainment that blends mirth and malice with startling results..."
USA Today - 03/31/1995
"...Rapturously original..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
Entertainment Weekly - 09/22/1995
"...A wonderfully somber comedy....A great video find." -- Rating: A-
Variety - 01/30/1995
"Homage, memory and unabashed zaniness infect FUNNY BONES. It's a tour de force for filmmaker Peter Chelsom..."
New York Times - 03/24/1995
"...A winningly eccentric flight of fancy....It delivers a wealth of odd pleasures..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/31/1995
"...[A] free-wheeling, risk-taking and altogether striking comedy..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 04/07/1995
"...FUNNY BONES is entertaining and absorbing..."

Product Description:

A wildly eccentric film about a struggling stand-up comedian who must find his own voice outside his famous father's comedic orbit. Tommy tries out an act in Las Vegas, but his egoistic father George derails the show. In frustration, Tommy scolds the audience and bolts from the stage, and flees town. He goes back to his childhood home, the seaside vaudeville hub of Blackpool, England, in search of inspiration. The comedians he auditions there are a disappointing, Fellini-esque lot from the past. Then Tommy meets Jack, who is both genuinely very funny and very scary. Seeing Jack and his family perform their act, Tommy realizes that George is not the original he pretends to be.
