ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING [2015]

With big names like Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley, Robin Williams & all the living members of Monty Python involved, you would think writer/director Terry Jones' goofy fantasy Absolutely Anything would be comedy gold.
Sadly this is not the case and we're treated to a dim-witted bore about an average Joe who's given alien powers to do anything he could ever imagine which may or may not be a good thing.
With such an absurd idea and this sort of maniacal talent Jones should have let his cast improvise and let loose a little but instead everyone seems way too restrained and following the script line-to-line.  There's a few lukewarm laughs but in the end it does nothing but severely disappoint and make it feel like there really is bugger all down here on Earth.
