Storyline

Walter Goodfellow, the vicar for the small English country parish of Little Wallop, has allowed his marriage to Gloria go stale, and he is so detached from his family that he has not taken notice that his 17-year-old daughter Holly is going through a succession of relationships with unsuitable boyfriends, and his son Petey fears going to school owing to being bullied. Out of desperation for affection, Gloria begins to fall for the advances of Lance, an American golf pro who is giving her "private" lessons. The problems upsetting the family start to fade away after Grace Hawkins, the new housekeeper, arrives and starts tending to matters as an older, and rather darkly mysterious version of Mary Poppins. Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Funny, sweet, heartwarming, refreshing
15 February 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is - in my humble opinion - a gem absolutely worth watching, and watching, and watching again. I found it genuinely funny, and laughed the whole movie through (and judging from the decibel level in the cinema the people around me enjoyed it too. :) It was refreshing, and gave me much of the same feeling as when I first saw Ocean's Eleven... it's one of those 'they don't make movies like these anymore' (only they do - sometimes), if you know what I mean. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I was especially impressed by the performance of Rowan Atkinson, who plays a more down-to-earth character than I'm used to seeing him play, and I think it suits him very well. He doesn't reduce the good reverend to a clown, but makes him sweet, realistic and lovable. Kudos also to Kristen Scott Thomas, who gives Gloria a heart, and the ever so amazing Dame Maggie Smith, who gives Rosie a soul. Bottom line: I recommend it wholeheartedly!
