The Tall Guy ★★★ 1989 (R)

Goldblum is a too-tall actor who tries the scene in London and lands the lead in a musical version of ‘The Elephant Man,' becoming an overnight success. Not consistently funny, but good British comedy, including an interesting sex scene. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Jeff Goldblum, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson, Geraldine James, Kim Thomson, Anna Massey; D: Mel Smith; W: Richard Curtis; C: Adrian Biddle; M: Peter Brewis.
