The film was a theatrical feature film spin-off of from a British television series something which was not unusual for popular UK TV series during the 1970s as the same thing was done with The Sweeney (1975), _"Steptoe and Son" (1962)_ (qv, _Bless This House (1971)_ and On the Buses (1969).

As a fan of the wonderful Britcom, I searched and searched for a copy of this movie. When I finally found it, I was disappointed. I like the characters much better in the store -- they just don't do well outside of Grace Brothers. It was a bit dull that many of the jokes were pulled from the TV shows (e.g. the "Dear Sexy Knickers ..." note; Mrs. Slocombe making offensive noises while blowing up her air mattress, etc.) and the ending was an abrupt letdown. Still a worthwhile watch for any fan of the show, but don't expect a lot.
