About the Book

Is Richard E Grant's 'Withnail' a far superior screen drunk to Jimmy Stewart in Harvey? What is the cinema's most tragic farewell, its most ingenious plot-twist, its most shocking murder? And why do Robert De Niro's characters behave so badly to women?

All film fans keep mental records of their post-show arguments in the pub. This book is a rollicking collection of such 'Top Tens', written by stars from Steven Soderberg and the Coen Brothers to Gilbert Adair and DBC Pierre. If you want to know the Ten Most-Deserved Oscars or Ten So-Called 'Turkeys' That Are Actually Brilliant, then look no further, Ten Bad Dates with De Niro could be your perfect match.
