Storyline

The plot of one of the early Channel Four films is sweet and simple. Boy likes girl at school, but is too embarrassed to confront her. Alan relates everything to a running cricket commentary (provided superbly by John Arlott) right up to the will he, won't he finale, when he has to kiss Ann in a school play. Written by Paul Batey

Trivia

Writer Jack Rosenthal wrote the film partially based on his childhood memories of growing up during the post-war era of the 1940s. See more »

Goofs

When Alan, Ann and Geoffrey walk home from school after rehearsing for the school play, the top deck of a modern (probably 1970s vintage) double-decker bus is visible at the far end of the alley. In the same scene, opposite the side-road that leads to the alley, is a modern Warboys-design (post-1964) "no cycling" sign. See more »

Quotes

[Abbo and Shaz are helping Alan learn his lines. They come to the line where Alan's character kisses Ann's character]
Alan: [quoting line from play] "I have seen the light of truth in what's happened and the light of love in your fiancée's eyes - love for me."
Abbo: Then you stride over to her, take her in your arms and... bleeeeugh!
[Abbo pretends to vomit]
Shaz: Puke and vomitudinosty!
Abbo: Spewosity upthrow!
Alan: [echoing Ann's comment to him earlier] That's stupid, that. Long drivel words that don't mean anything.

Every 12 year old boy should watch this Brilliant film.
27 January 2003 | by (Bedfordshire , England) – See all my reviews

There is a great danger when you watch a film that had had such a profound affect on you the first time around , that 20 years later , it wont hold the same magic as it did before. I must admit i wasnt expecting it to be as good as i remembered but a was pleasently suprised. P'tang Yang Kipperbang is still as fantastic as i remember it when i was a 12 year old .This film has a certain type of brilliance that not many films possess. It is engrossing , it is briliantly acted and best of all it makes me feel like a kid again and there isnt many things that can do that. John Albasiny and Abigail Cruttenden's rolls in this film are 1st class and i had forgotten how good they were until now. I urge any parent of teenagers to sit them down and watch this and see if it has the same affect on them as it did on me. P'TANG YANG KIPPERBANG EEHHH! 10 out of 10.
