I guess I just don't think he gave the same gusto to his performances against Michael. Again, it's hard to describe...
I see. Thanks for the explaination . It did kind of seem that way between them in some of their scenes.

Mark Williams and Julie Walters for best.
Good point. But on a side note, I think it can kind of add to a film at times. If something stands out in that way, it can really bring a person into the film itself.

As for what the film makers would have done... I would have dreaded it as well.
