Based on the true story about the famous murderers, 'Burke And Hare' follows the hapless exploits of these two men as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in Nineteenth Century Edinburgh, then the centre of medical learning. The one thing they were short of was bodies.

Disappointing beyond measure17 January 2012

I had high hopes but this movie IS NOT well made, it IS NOT entertaining, and it IS NOT going to run again at my house.





Not great07 September 2011

Simon Pegg can do much better than this.

Dissapointed15 August 2011

Well Mr Pegg, all i gonna say is, you have totally let yourself down on this one, was hoping for the usual level of side splitting comedy, no chance with this film. In my opinion a total waste of time and money to be fair...

Didnt really dig it31 March 2011

Nice period piece about grave robbers and cadavers, but not really very funny. Simon Pegg has done much better in the past.
