At the start of this year, Ian McNabb, former frontman of the English alt-rock band The Icicle Works, tweeted that anyone struggling to sleep during the pandemic was advised to watch the Russell Crowe film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.

McNabb savagely added, "I've never made it past the ten minute mark."

Hilariously Crowe, never one to turn the other cheek, replied to McNabb barely a week later, extolling the virtues of the film while sarcastically putting him down.

Crowe said, "That's the problem with kids these days. No focus," before adding that Master and Commander was "definitely an adults movie."

An amused McNabb ended the exchange with a good-humoured reply, however, explaining that he's 60 years old, but loved the recent Crowe thriller Unhinged.
