fantastic
7 April 2004 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Bless this house i think is a very funny movie i have ever seen. It's a classic 1970's movie. As well as Till Death do us part, Raising Damp, and all the other classic comedy movies, Bless this house i think is the best because it has the fantastic actor Sid james who i think is a fantastic, one of the best comedian actors. Sid James is best known to star in the carry on movies as well as Terry Scott. This movie was made in 1972. The movie is about where a family have new neighbours next door. They do allsorts to the house, wreck it and get the whole place re-done, The Son from One Family and the Daughter from the new neighbours family fall in love together. And eventually get married in the end. It is a classic movie and it's worth buying and watching. I give Bless this house 10 out of 10 because it is very funny.
