Rated NR

A disgraced Hollywood actor-turned-high school drama teacher in Tucson (Steve Coogan) is informed that drama is getting cut from the school budget. He retaliates by penning a sequel to Hamlet wherein the Dane and Jesus fly around in a time machine, saving the lives of all who died in the original play. Coogan is hilarious in the lead role of Dana, an untalented eternal optimist with unending energy. Elisabeth Shue gets her best role in years as herself, forgotten by Hollywood and settled into life as a Tucson nurse. I expect a hard push for the musical classic “Rock Me, Sexy Jesus” at the next Oscars. This is yet another good comedy in a summer of great ones, and it solidifies Coogan as a major cinematic talent.
