The Best of Godber
14 September 2004 | by (East yorkshire) – See all my reviews

This film based on John Godber's stage play actually was written long before Brassed Off & The Full Monty

Set in Hull & with some good on location scenes that resemble Hull even if they are not

Some good casting even tho' they are obviously not from Hull, at least there were no put on accents

The acting was of a good quality & John Godber's sense of humour was very obvious.

A good adaption from the very successful stage play first seen at the Hull Truck Theatre.

A definitely worth watching film
