Mighty Boosh director Paul King has conjured up another unconventional tale of ill-fitting friends with many of the familiar faces in British comedy and staple Boosh contributors along for the ride as extreme agoraphobic Stephen recalls the disastrous trip taken with sex-obsessed, selfish former-friend Bunny that has left him in his present state, despairing of the hand that life has dealt him.

While Bunny’s quirky humour has its moments it is with its stunning visuals that the film makes an indelible impression. Grounded firmly in the surreal Bunny was no doubt a dream project for the creative team behind it, who were evidently given unrestricted artistic freedom. Casting a wide net in terms of thematic scope Bunny does digress occasionally by refusing to narrow its focus in favour of comedy or tragedy; however King doesn’t forget to add depth to his story, effectively evoking Stephen’s grief, loneliness and insecurity as he confronts his many issues.
