Wonderful
19 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of those wonderful old films which would be impossible to replicate in this modern era. Sadly it is also one of those films which you either love or hate, as taken in it strictest sense it is to modern audiences and those under 50 years something they would probably not fully appreciate. For me though, it is a wonderful glimpse of when films were fun, innocent and experimental, a lot of actors, technicians etc put a lot of time, effort and money to make this, with a minimal budget to boot, and the actors did it for free, no massive egos in this film, and it shows. If you do manage to find this film, please watch and listen to the directors commentary in the bonus section as it reveals so much about how they made the film and what was going on behind the scenes, which I found to be as interesting as the film itself. OK there are better films similar to this to be found, Eric Sykes The Plank and Ronnie Barkers Futtocks End come to mind and this one really should have a larger following than it has, so please find it and enjoy it, leave any prejudices behind, you will not be disappointed.
