Original Trailer of the movie, based on the well known comedy by Oscar Wilde "The Importance of Being Earnest"

The plot revolves around two men in Edwardian England, John (Jack) Worthing and Algernon (Algy) Moncrieff. Whenever Jack travels to London from his Hertfordshire estate he says he is going to see his (fictitious) wayward brother Ernest. Once in London he keeps his privacy by calling himself Ernest. This tactic is especially important as his beloved, Gwendolen, declares that she could only love a man named Ernest. Her cousin, Algy, is the one person who knows Jack's secret and one day he travels down to the estate, announcing himself to Jack's attractive ward Cecily as the infamous Ernest. Cecily is enamoured with him and his name, and upon Jack's return home and Gwendolen's unexpected arrival it becomes clear there are both too many and too few Ernests earnestly courting. (Wikipedia ENG)

Very well done movie in my opinion, with two of the best english actors, Colin Firth and Rupert Everett, both perfect here in their roles! but we have not to forget the co-stars Reese Whiterspoon, Frances O'Connor and Judi Dench!!
Funny and enjoyable! (look out for the song the two men start singing to the ladies)
