The Fenn Street Gang On The BIG SCREEN!
8 April 2020 | by mwilson1976See all my reviews

In this spin off based on the popular TV sitcom, Mr Hedges (John Alderton) takes his troublesome class 5C to a holiday camp with inevitably comic and disastrous results. Despite the humour being a touch on the politically incorrect and racy side by modern standards, this is mainly a light hearted and good natured affair that never takes itself seriously at all. Featuring all the regular gang from the TV show (all the 'kids' look like they are in their twenties and thirties), and a few knowing nods to the pop culture of the day ('Hendrix Lives' written on a blackboard, alluding to the then recent death of Jimi Hendrix), the movie was one of the most popular at the British Box Office in 1972. Mike Vickers did the music, which features Cilla Black performing La La La Lu (I Love You).
