Uplifting, heart-warming, and thoroughly enjoyable!
11 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is the first review I have written on IMDb, and I do so only because I feel the other reviews have been ridiculously unjust to this light-hearted, frothy, and thoroughly enjoyable comedy.

For pure escapist fun, pervaded by a gentle and giggly sense of humour that never takes itself seriously, I recommend this movie highly. In many ways, it reminded me of the innocent spirit and child-like joie-de-vivre of "The Sound of Music" and "Mary Poppins". Indeed, I'd go so far as to say that if you're in any way a fan of the aforementioned two classics, then you will almost certainly feel that watching "Mrs. Ratcliffe's Revolution" was time well spent.

I would probably have scored this movie a genuine 7/10, but I feel the necessity to counteract the ridiculously low scores given so far.
