One of the first books to critically examine significant developments within British cinema during the 1990s and to explore the interactions of comedy and drama in a number of key films from the period Case studies include some of the most popular and influential British films of the 1990s and beyond: Brassed Off.

The Full Monty, East is East, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Love Actually Discusses these specific films within the generic contexts of community-based regional comedies, British cultural traditions of treating issues of race and ethnicity from a 'comic' perspective, and examples of romantic comedy set and produced in Britain Makes a significant contribution to our understanding and appreciation of an exciting recent period of British cinema, and situates the achievements of the films in their social, cinematic and historical contexts Written in a clear and accessible style which aims to demonstrate that British films are worthy of in-depth analysis, interpretation and evaluation
