Brilliant
16 September 2004 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Brilliant, better than the 1970's TV original version. Superb cast, particularly Tom Courtenay and Bill Nighy. The four way dialogue in the bus regarding a suggestion for a new TV series (twin brothers, Civil Engineers, building a bridge) ("What, no Doctors, policemen, shagging?") was superb, apart from crystallising what the viewing public wants. Whether Jack Rosenthal updated the story for 2003 I do not know but it had class written all over it. Shown on Sky Movies, and will therefore presumably be repeated. Don't miss it, and if it is ever released as a DVD buy or rent it.
