Unfunny and Senseless

In Dublin, one day Hubert Flynn (Pete Postlethwaite) leaves the pub and turns into a rat at home. On the next morning, the writer Phelim "Felix" Spratt (David Wilmot) visits the family and offers to write a book about Hubert. His wife Conchita Flynn (Imelda Staunton) accepts the offer and Felix moves to Hubert's room. His son Pius (Andrew Lovern) wants to kill the rat while his daughter Marietta (Kerry Condon) has a dilemma whether she introduces her boyfriend to her father or not. In Christmas, Uncle Matt (Frank Kelly) proposes to leave Hubert in a maggot farm. What will happen with the rat?

"Rat" is an unfunny and senseless black humor comedy that does not work. The story uses the idea of Kafka's "The Metamorphosis" but without the talent of the famous writer and also without a message. I spent 89 minutes running time without laughing and the only thing funny is people writing that this movie is hilarious. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "Este Rato É um Espanto" ("This Rat Is Amazing")

Black comedy that delivers the laughs .......

First, "Rat" gets extra points for a very original screenplay. The fine acting is what carries this unique comedy, because the only way "Rat" works is if the characters come across as dead serious, which they do. Any decent into slapstick would have been disastrous. Another plus is the unique camera angles giving a rat's point of view. Different reactions of the various family members, to what is obviously a highly unusual situation, fuels this dark comedy. In order for a black comedy to work, it must be outrageous, not mean spirited, and deadly serious, and "Rat succeeds on all counts. I liked this clever and highly original comedy. - MERK

Definately a heartwarming tale.

Love every minute of it. Perhaps a little too irish in the dialect but awesome in story telling. Despite the fact there is an A** in here, kids should have no problem with it. It's so weird that it tells it as if this is all normal. Gee so your father turned into a rat. Something normal for ye.
