Welcome to Marbella, the original Costa del Sol paradise for the rich and famous and for those wishing they were.

Upon greeting a nude Ashley (Craig Kelly), Harvey (David Gant) remarks to him: "I see you're one of Cromwell's boys -- a roundhead [circumcised] as opposed to a cavalier [uncircumcised]." However, mere moments earlier, a full frontal shot of Kelly reveals a generous foreskin. See more »
I enjoyed this comedy which had some rather stereotyped but still amusing characters in a fast-paced fairly intelligent Britcom set on the Costa Del Sol in Southern Spain. The film was rather short, but it adds up to a decent, light evening's entertainment, with some decent comedic high spots. A number of familiar & skilled character actors pop up during the film and Rik Mayall & Eddie Webber were good to watch in their respective roles as a slimy estate agent and timeshare victim. It will come as no surprise that both Tom Bell & Mike Reid were perfectly cast as aging gangsters.
The film left me feeling that more could have been developed, however and the film finished a little abruptly. Nonetheless, it's a well scripted and acted comedy of particular interest to anyone who has visited the Costa del Sol. The filmmakers have shown promise here and I hope that their next film fulfills the potential hinted at in "Oh Marbella".
Overall - recommended.
