Brilliant!
9 October 2002 | by (Blackburn, Lancashire) – See all my reviews

Getting Sam Home is a brilliant feature length outing for the lovable rogues Compo, Clegg and Foggy. The script is touching as well as humorous, not forgetting the wonderful dialogues between the terrible trio. A must for everyone, surely!
