How to Get Ahead in Advertising

An inventive, bizarre comedy satire that reunites writer-director Bruce Robinson with the star of cult classic Withnail And I, Richard E Grant.

Dennis Dimbleby Bagley is a brilliant young advertising executive who can’t come up with a slogan to sell a revolutionary new pimple cream. His obsessive worrying affects not only his relationship with his wife, his friends and his boss, but also his own body – graphically demonstrated when he grows a large stress-related boil on his shoulder. But when the boil grows eyes and a mouth and starts talking, Bagley really begins to think he’s lost his mind. But has he?

Critic Reviews:

  • " Grant alone makes this eminently worth renting. " – Rob Gonsalves
  • " Thanks to Grant's bravura performance, the film is wickedly enjoyable. " – Michael Dequina
  • " One of the strangest, most outrageous, most bitter, irreverent and bitingly funny satires the movies ever offered. " – Ken Hanke
