Dated
6 August 2008 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Possible spoilers!! I found this a rather dull and very dated Irish/British comedy/satire set in a large ancestral Irish mansion. My wife found it amusingly eccentric. It was written as a stage play and its premise is that of an eccentric family living beyond their means. They have to take in PG's (paying guests). Half the family are in favor and the other half endeavour to sabotage's the money making scheme. There's love interests, a kooky aunt who may save the day and a hunt for treasure. Good natured and predictable, not memorable. Jimmy Edwards manages to blow on a few brass instruments which I believe is a bit of a trademark with him.
