A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.

The Cottage Hotel stood in for The Royal Hotel in Hope Cove, and hosted most of the production team. Only exterior scenes were shot here, however. Permission was given by the owner for filming to take place inside the hotel but when the crew advised they would need to "knock holes through walls" and make other interior changes, the owner refused and filming instead later took place at an unknown property in London for all inside shots of the hotel rooms, dining rooms, reception and corridor. As of early 2016 the hotel remains identical to how it was seen in the film, however the owners are presently planning an extensive renovation that will see it changed almost completely. See more »
I wasn't expecting much from this movie. To be honest, I just wanted to see Saunders and Edmondson together on screen. I was surprised to see how good this movie turned out to be. The plot is engaging and it leaves the viewer wondering was Dennis telling the truth or not. Saunders, Edmondson and Richardson were very good at portraying the odd trio and it was nice to see Ade and Jennifer in a more serious role than those in their usual repertoire. All three of them were very sweet, especially Ade as a naive "supergrass". This comedy is very different (in plot as well as style) from other works of my favorite married couple of comedians, but that is what makes this movie so special and original; at least to me. People who aren't fans maybe won't like this flick. There's nothing groundbreaking about it and it's humor is much more subtle than "Ab Fab" or "Bottom" but nevertheless, it made me laugh a lot. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again with my sister (who is also a fan of Saunders).
