Storyline

Friends Herman, Karl, Keith, Derek, and Barry are working-class Manchester lads who aren't getting far in their respective working lives. That fact is epitomized by Herman's failure to get the promotion to junior account executive at the advertising company at which he works. Regardless, his Grandmother Gloria, with whom he lives, has faith in him. What Herman really wants to do is race Mrs. Brown, a greyhound inherited from his now-deceased grandfather. Mrs. Brown is a natural racer and has the potential to win. His four mates have bought equal ownership of Mrs. Brown. Their problem is that what little money they collectively have goes into the care and feeding of Mrs. Brown, which doesn't leave them enough money for race entry fees, the ultimate race being held in London. So they try to raise money by their band Herman's Hermits playing at whatever gig they can get. In their quest to get themselves to London and Mrs. Brown into the race, they get into one misadventure after another.... Written by Huggo

The boys must have needed a payday in the worst way
8 November 2004 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

As bad as this silliness was it still outshone The Beatles "Help" by a wide margin. It was, however, not in the same class as "A Hard Days Night" by the Fab 4 which was a masterpiece - well, sorta. In Mrs. Brown we have the 5 cute Hermits running around England trying to become big time dog racers, making time with cute birds, grinning like blind apes, playing their abysmal songs, and proving their talents lie not in acting. I enjoyed the film very much because it showcased one of the original 'invasion' groups, not because it was an award winner; although it really wasn't all that bad either. Is it possible the Hermits popularity waned because at the time of this filming most rock groups has gone beyond the squeaky clean, suit and tie, short/mod hair Herman and the boys were sporting? These blokes looked like advertising men when compared to Big Brother or the Dead.
