When Bad Promises to be Good

Two comedians are taking time out from their own shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, to poke fun at a couple of movies.

On Thursday, Robin Ince takes on Highlander, while, on Monday, Josie Long has a go at Xanadu – both events part of an occasional series ‘celebrating bad films’ at capital cinema, the Cameo.

Says the Cameo: “Robin Ince [who has a film of his own, Razzle Dazzle, screening at the forthcoming Edinburgh International Film Festival] and Josie Long will guide their audience through a minefield of bad acting and terrible plot lines via a live DVD-style commentary. Heckling, jeering and lots of audience participation is positively encouraged.”

That’s Highlander (15)(1986), starring Christopher Lambert
