MeEff: Withnail and I is also written and directed by Bruce Robinson, and in many ways, a much better movie.

I used to love How to Get Ahead... when I was 14-15, but on rewatching it a few years ago, I was greatly disapointed. I found it too "in your face" with the symbolism and not subtle enough. Grant did a great job, but it left everyone else as two-bit players in his one man show. The talking boil aspect loses it's punch after you get used to it and the ending is predictable.
