The best sitcom-film
23 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film regularly gets a one star rating in the film guides. Why? For this film is a short sweet joy and truly the best TV spin off film of the early 70's - it stands head and shoulders above the dire On the Buses series. The acting and writing are a joy and for once it looks as though someone actually cared about the photography and direction. Its not a million miles away from Hobson's Choice and certainly Bill Fraser, Raymond Huntley and David Battley and the rest of the well known ensemble give this Hammer lo-budget gem a touch of class. Miss it at your peril.
