A QUESTION TO YOU...

PostPosted by AerialHair » Wed Apr 06, 2011 9:41 pm

Hello Withnail and I fans,
I am a student, (sorry Tennyson) and would love it if any of you could answer some questions for me to improve my research for an essay I'm writing about Withnail and I having cult status.

1. How many times have you watched the film?
2. Have you been to any of the locations from the film?
3. What is it you like most about this forum?

All answers welcome,
cheers :wine:

1. I have no real idea, well over a hundred.

2. Yes.

3. Well it can't be the people so it must be the decor.

Over a hundred! wow, I thought I was a fan. Can anyone top that?
Where did you visit?
Not loving the decor personally, but reckon it'll grow on me.

1. Probably over a hundred times.

2. The bench, the Mother Black Cap and (outside) Monty's house.

3. The delightful chap who's in charge.

1) several hundred times easily.
2) Sleddale hall 5 times, phone box a few times & the bull gate once.
3) the devastating repartee.

For all of you who have seen the film 'over a hundred' times...

1. Do you know every line? If yes, have you ever tried to see if you could recite the whole thing over a drink?
2. Do you think you could ever get bored of watching it?

1) Hmm somewhere between 20 and 30 ( shame on me ) compared with the centennials and just the once on the big screen.

2) All of the "up north" locations, mostly you will find me prowling around Crow Crag wearing a smoking jacket and makeup.

3) I have no clue, probably just beacause its here and I can vent spleen on the population..



Is this for the W&I census :lol: :?:

Yes you are, of course you are.

I think there may be something alive. I'll be sprouting fucking feelers soon.

Dear Aerialhair

Delighted you're writing something about the film, dear heart! It's not me who hates students, it's Crooked (but I suspect his bark is worse than his bite).

Please keep us updated on your progress. I want to read your essay! Another student chappie joined the Forum briefly this time last year, planning to "do" the film for his dissertation, but I think we must have frightened him off. Jolly good luck to you.

Hello student.

1.No idea. Hundreds. Perhaps over 500 times?
2.Been to Crow Crag. Tried to find the phone box and bridge but got lost and ended up tramping through beastly oomska and a brook before reaching Crow Crag.
3.I like that i can come on here and be a pompous twat when in real life people generally won't tolerate such behaviour. THEY just look at me like i'm mad because they don't get Withnail & I. The bastards

Thinking about it, does Crooked actually like anything except Withnail? He has put all his likes into one basket and started a forum.

I like cider. But that's in the film. I also like cats. Again, in the film...

I like Jedward now that they are on Eurovision.

1. No idea. Like McFuck said sometimes I'll watch it obsessively for a couple of weeks, then I'll go a few months without. Very rough estimate at around 100 times. Possibly less, probably more.

2. Been to 'Crow Crag', the bridge and the red phonebox in Bampton.


3. The general level of intelligence compared to the rest of the internet. And the pub atmosphere.


Although if people are going to say things like "I like Jedward" I might have been wrong about the level of intelligence. :shock:

1. "I'm going for a cup of tea, do you want one?"
"Do you want a cup of tea, Withnail?"
"No..."

"Thirteen million Londoners have to wake up to this, and murder and all-bran and rape. And I'm sitting in this bloody shack and I can't cope with Withnail. I must be out of my mind. I must go home at once and discuss his problems in depth."

"I have some extremely distressing news..."

...and so on. Yes. I've never actually recited the whole thing, but it wasn't because I forgot a line, it was because people were starting to look at me strangely, so I got down off the pool table and finished my drink quietly. I'm fairly sure the sexy barmaid was impressed though.

2. Did you hear that? AN UNBELIEVER! PERSECUTE, BURN THE HERETIC!
