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>

Bonham Carter and Mayall together ?? !!
26 April 1999 | by (Norwich, England) – See all my reviews

I must confess that I have never been a big fan of Rik Mayall, but I am of Helena Bonham Carter, so I started to watch this to see how two supposed opposites would work together.

What I found was a surprisingly enjoyable comedy, with Rik Mayall turning in a good, surprisingly reserved performance.

Like "Staggered" with Martin Clunes, this film follows a Stag Night prank which leaves Mayall stranded on a train heading North with no money and the only companion being the stripper from the stag night, played by Bonham Carter.

The film is predictable enough but Bonham Carter brings a depth to her character which lifts the quality of the whole production, and leaves it as a good film to just wind down to after a busy day.
