Dreadful.
29 July 2001 | by (Swindon & Plymouth, England) – See all my reviews

G&M started a the odd couple downstairs in Man About the House and went on to amusing the nation in their own sitcom.

What was the typical small-scale personal charm of the couples chemistry on the small screen, G&M's transferral to the big screen was as appalling as genuis's Morcombe and Wise, and countless fine TV shows.

Unfunny. Unsatisfying and featuring an ill Yootha Joyce who died before the film was released.
