Pope Pourri | Robbie Coltrane (The Pope)
Robbie Coltrane (The Pope)

Film: The Pope Must Die (1991)

Following the King Ralph template for cuddly-but-daft figureheads, Robbie Coltrane is caught in the middle as the humble priest appointed Pope after a clerical error. Coltrane's (un)Holy Father cuts a distinctly unpapal figure: he's called Dave, loves rock 'n' roll, has a son by an ex-girlfriend and a Cockney accent. He's probably a better pick for Archbishop of Canterbury.
