George and Mildred is one of the greatest sitcoms to come from the "70's" decade.Like Bless this house,this sitcom is a Domestic one.This feature length movie though decides to take a trip down memory lane for the couple.
Mildred decides that she and george will celebrate their anniversary of their wedding in a posh hotel.The catch is George gets himself into trouble and hilaritys pursue.
It is not up to the standards of its small screen counter-part but is still a funny and good film.
George is his usual self in this film and provides some great laughs especially with his screen time at the start and end with the fourmiles.
The original cast are still present,which is a good sound start,and some well known comic actors also are present,for example "Carry On Matron" star Kenneth Cope as the bumbling hit man.
The film though is relived on DVD, with oddly a 15 certificate (why???) and i would say is harmless family fun just like its small screen counter-part.
Its drawbacks though is that it ends pretty sharply, and i do wish the fourmiles featured a bit more.
I think if the film took a different angle such as "A holiday with the Fourmiles and George's friend in pursuit" might have fetched a better plot,but all the same it was a fair BIG screen match. (8.4/10)
