Always Crashing in the Same CarAmerican cinema has never been able to put together a pairing as bottom-feeding perfect as Richard E. Grant & Paul McGann from 1986’s Withnail and I. It’s a film that’s still quotable 20 years later, and certainly a gem (and an amazing start) in Richard E Grant’s long filmography of complete bastards.

Fans can now rejoice, as director Duncan Wellaway reunited the eponymous I with Withnail via the 12 minute short film ‘Always Crashing in the Same Car‘, which is freely available from the Times Online website. Okay, so it’s more of a reuniting of the actors rather than the characters (which is sure to disappoint some), but it’s truly a delight to see McGann and Grant re-ignite a chemistry that hasn’t been seen on film in 20 years.
