Nope. It’s the one directed by Paddy Breathnach and written by Simon Beaufoy. Released 2001. Really funny movie.

I’m so glad Bottle Shock got mentioned…it’s a wonderful little movie full of some fantastic performances. Mr. Rickman’s first taste of KFC was absolutely priceless.

You’re thinking of ‘The Big Tease’. ‘Blow Dry’ features Josh Hartnett with a truly appalling Yorkshire accent.

I’ll check that out! Is that the one starring and possibly written by Craig Ferguson?

Aw, it’s so much fun hearing everyone’s memories of Mr. Rickman. He was such a versatile actor and so fun to watch whether playing good guys, bad guys or the combination thereof. I have to put in a plug for my all time favorite Alan Rickman movie, Blow Dry. It’s worth hunting down, a simple yet complex little story that always makes me smile.
