A highly entertaining film
28 August 2007 | by (Netanya, Israel) – See all my reviews

A marvelous must-see film. It was shown here on cable television and what the Hebrew speakers made of it I do not know. I understand that it was never released because the makers went bust so search for it on eBay, DVD from the far east or Amazon. This is British humour at its best. And, no, you cannot borrow my copy! Set in Liverpool with stunning photography, it oozes Liverpool humour and wit. I worked there for 18 months a long time ago (30 years) and it rolled back the years. The acting is uniformly brilliant and it would really be wrong to single out any of the actors, even a personal favorite Tom Georgeson, a knockout in a small role as a priest.

At only 90 minutes, it flies by and leaves you wanting more. A simple story of a wooden Madonna that the church does not want and is rescued by a richly comical Catholic family headed by Ricky Tomlinson as a bus driver. There follows a series of very funny incidents that culminate in spectacular aerial shots of Liverpool.

My own favorite scene involves the boy of the house and his mother's mail-order catalogue but I will not spoil it, nor might IMDb allow me to elucidate. But how can I leave out the raid on the Rastafarian home? Or the bus driving scenes? A special mention of the singing. If that was Imelda Staunton in a very good Scouse accent, a pure revelation.

Kill to see this film. If you appreciate British humour, they don't come much funnier than this,
