Under the mistaken impression that his pet hamster, Abu, is ill Harry Hill and his Nan (Julie Walters) take him to the vet, who wrongly gives them the tragic news that Abu has one week to live. Harry, who thinks he speaks fluent hamster (but, in fact, misunderstands every squeak that comes out of his little pal's mouth), incorrectly thinks Abu's dying wish is a trip to Blackpool. With Nan making three, the trio embark on a road trip to the seaside town. Unbeknownst to them, the Vet is actually the dirty rotten henchman of Harry's evil twin brother Otto (Matt Lucas), who was raised separately by Alsatians. Addicted to Hula-Hoops and fueled by revenge, Otto's nefarious plot is to kidnap Abu and make him the centerpiece of the plastinated hamster world he's creating in his evil lair. Can Harry and Nan stop Otto before it's too late? Written by Production

Total fun for the traditional British non-sense surreal humor lovers
24 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Excellent laugh. Why watch and rate this movie if you don't like "traditional" British non-sense surreal humor, which is genius just for its mere existence...: trying to set conventional logic and thinking on fire with the kind of best ever "freeforming" humor you would share with some friends after some drinks, creating ridiculous situations and characters.

The people that made this movie, obviously, sincerely like and do want to entertain people, not indulge themselves achieving any high score on any commercially safe and traditional kind of humor.

What here also should be mentioned is that the photography, cgi, mastering is of astonishing, much superior than expected level for a comedy-slash-musical- jokes&puppets-movie, which shows again the sovereignty that British filmmakers and broadcasters can flip out of their pocket without even taking it to serious themselves. I cant believe i nearly missed the laugh due to the ratings here, which from now on i surely wont take anymore as an orientation.
