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

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 late 1970s) 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

[the boys are playing an impromptu game of cricket on waste ground next to the canal. Alan hits the ball for six... into the canal]
Geoffrey: Berk!
Boy: You stupid bugger.
Geoffrey: It's in the bloody canal, you berk. If it sinks, you're out.
Abbo: [laconically] We'll have to move that canal!

P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang
9 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang. Some people may perceive this film as sweet and adorable but they have to be completely (or almost) entirely mistaken. P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang is probably the most overrated stories of all time: after I watched it, I found myself wanting an hour of my life back. No need to fear however, liberation is coming, in a few decades this film will become outdated and left on a shelf to rot. Don't make the same mistake as I did: DON'T WATCH THIS FILM! Watch some good films like the Godfather trilogy (excluding number 3 which is essentially about incest), Shawshank Redemption, the Good,the Bad,the Ugly, the Dark Knight, Inception, Argo, the Untouchables, Gladiator...Don't get me started and don't waste a single brain cell on P'tang yang kipper bang. It's utter crap,
