Perfect
16 February 2004 | by (Sarasota) – See all my reviews

Now this is what I call comedy. Nothing vulgar, nothing salacious and no attempt to politicize the characters. The cast could not have been better selected. Peter O'Toole is the embodiment of dreamy dottiness as Lord Emsworth, devoted to his prize sow, the Empress. The entire cast is superbly funny, all performing with a detailed nuance of character often missing from major films touted as masterpieces. These actors live their parts as if born to play them. Judy Parfitt manages to stand out as the formidable gorgon, Lady Constance, "Connie" as her siblings refer to her, funny in itself being such a sweet name and being appended to such a fearful person. Her sister Julia finally reins Connie in with the single word "tone" when Connie launches into her jaw clenching mode with underlings and fools. Parfitt's facial manoeverings at these times are hilarous.

Benjamin Soames, young Fish, is ideal as the bloopy-eyed, empty-headed prince of Blandings Castle. Fuddled, muddled and in-love with the dance-hall performer Sue.

If only this were available on dvd! It would be too much to hope for that, let alone an entire series of Blandings Castle stories to go along with the wonderful Jeeves and Wooster series with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
