Funny big-screen spin-off from a popular sitcom
28 July 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

John Alderton plays Bernard Hedges, a too-sensitive teacher at a rough-as-guts comprehensive school whose unruly pupils alternate between siding with him and giving him a hard time. After a near-riot in assembly on the first day of term, Hedges asks his class why they didn't "jump at the chance" of going on an outward bound course, and Peter Cleall (who would later appear in the horrible CONFESSIONS OF A POP PERFORMER and a memorable public information film about fire safety doors) replies "Jump? We don't get the chance to even bloody hop!". Lines such as these are scattered through the screenplay, and still make me laugh years later. Hedges is outraged at the raw deal his class is receiving, and campaigns to get them out of the wicked city and into the great outdoors. After some juicy dialogue with the coach driver (Jack Smethurst of LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR fame) - "Shut your mouth and give your brains a chance!" - and a couple of politically incorrect diversions with the pakistani kid and the black kid (who later joined the British reggae band Aswad!) that will probably have to be cut for future showings - they arrive at the outward bound centre, and so begins a string of often very funny set pieces and episodes. There isn't much plot, but the spirited performances and the inventive naughtiness of the Fenn Street gang keep you engaged. Although the overall tone is genuinely innocent, it's likely that the politically correct chattering classes will frown at lines like "Get tarts up your belfry!" and one girl faking a rape scenario just to humiliate the rival posh kids. Overall this is a pleasant piece of nostalgia, hardly a night out at the pictures, but still engaging enough on a rainy afternoon.
