Critic Reviews of "Bill"Total FilmOctober 31, 2016
A Horrible Histories film by any other name, Bill sees the cast of the popular CBBC show unite for a daft, affectionate take on the rise-to-fame years of William Shakespeare.Liverpool EchoDecember 30, 2015
The cast's energy is infectious and they frequently seem to be one smirk or snigger shy of corpsing en masse and ruining the take.The Sun (UK)December 15, 2015
A rare family film -- one that's hilarious.What CultureNovember 06, 2015
You will chuckle a lot.Movie TalkSeptember 20, 2015
It's knockabout stuff, a long way from the elegant wit of Tom Stoppard's Shakespeare in Love but performed with infectious gusto by the multiple-role-playing cast.Daily Express (UK)September 20, 2015
An amiable diversion ...Daily Express (UK)September 20, 2015
Bill is daft fun for all the family, plus there is the bonus of Damian Lewis as Sir Richard Hawkins.Observer (UK)September 20, 2015
Nicely balancing its historically literate gags with broad knockabout slapstick, Bill is a crowd-pleasing treat that should tickle audiences young and old alike.Times (UK)September 18, 2015
Don't let the two-star rating throw you completely, for there are some nice gags in Bill.Independent (UK)September 18, 2015
Richard Bracewell's Elizabethan-era comedy, starring the cast of Horrible Histories and Yonderland, is brisk, cheery fare that yields as many laughs as it does groans.Sky MoviesSeptember 17, 2015
If you're up for a spot of lyre rock and other hey-nonny-nonsense, this is exactly as you like it.Radio TimesSeptember 17, 2015
The original members of TV's Horrible Histories make a promising feature debut with this ribald period romp.
