Storyline

One of three hour long dramas that Rik Mayall did for ITV in the summer of 1993. Dancing Queen concerns Neil who is at his batchelor party. A stripper called Pandora performs her dance and Neil's mates load him on a train as a last gag. Neil awakes on the train, Pandora's there and at the stop where his mates are to pick him up, the train doesn't stop. Neil and Pandora walk around one of Northern England's premier seaside towns as he frets over the utter chaos his marriage day has turned out to be and tries to get back. All the while, Pandora is going on carnival rides and just generally moping around listening to Abba's Dancing Queen. Written by Richard John <rjohn@canoe.ca>

Sweet, funny, memorable.
8 August 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This one-off TV movie is one of my all-time favourite films. Scarborough has never looked more romantic and beautiful. Mayall and Bonham-Carter deliver thoughtful, subtle performances and have real chemistry. Above all, this story is simply pleasurable, each scene unashamedly romantic. I love this movie and watch it when I'm down. It's an old fashioned romance for modern people who wish real life could just be a little nicer.
