It's hell not being able to keep up with appliance payments.
19 November 2005 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

This 12-minute film short is one of 4 different shorts on one VHS tape by Aardman Animations, the group that has given us the Wallace and Gromit animations.

In "Not Without My Handbag" we see an older lady that didn't quite read all the fine print in her purchase contract for a washer. The clause that escaped her was that missing a payment would send you straight to hell! But she subsequently has to return because she didn't have her handbag, and even she wouldn't stay in hell without a proper handbag.

I suppose being British would help appreciate this film short. While I enjoyed it, I am sure much of the intended humor was missed on me.
