"An extremely funny Britcom - the gags-per-minute ratio is through the roof. Bruce Mindhorn is a gem of comedy creation, played to perfection by Barratt. This is comedy gold"
★★★★
- Cath Clarke, Time Out

"Heaving with belly laughs, notably in an inspired third act, Mindhorn is a hilariously rib-tickling homage to the gumshoe shows of yesteryear, with an endearingly daffy mindset"
★★★★
- Neil Smith, Total Film

"Howlingly funny, this British comedy brims with unexpected pleasures. Even the celebrity cameos work, while in Barratt and Farnaby, the film has a wonderful double act"
★★★★
- Danny Leigh, Financial Times

"Julian Barratt plays with fanatical gusto a deluded, failed actor in this wildly silly and raucous film. There are such great gags that it’s impossible not to root for this unlikeliest of heroes. Bruce Mindhorn is a creation to savour"
★★★★
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).

Directed by Sean Foley from a script based on a Simon Farnaby (Yonderland, Horrible Histories) original idea, and co-written by 2016 BIFA nominated Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) and Farnaby, Mindhorn is British comedy at its best.

The film stars Julian Barratt as Richard Thorncroft / Mindhorn and Simon Farnaby as Clive Parnevik, they are joined by Essie Davis (Games of Thrones) Russell Tovey (Pride), Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), Jessica Barden (Tamara Drewe), Harriet Walter (Denial) and Steve Coogan (Philomena).
