Trivia

Unused to the technical requirements of film direction, William G. Stewart approached the production as he did the parent TV series, with a multi-camera set-up. Needless to say, this substantially (and unnecessarily) upped the expense of the film. See more »

Goofs

Outside the church after the wedding service, the amount of confetti on Patrick, Georgie and particularly Richard varies greatly between shots. See more »

Not Deep - Just Good Fun
7 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Patrick Cargill and his co-stars were in their element and Donald Sinden played a good role too. My memories of this as a teenager obviously related much more to the two young daughters - particularly Natasha Pyne. I haven't looked at the IMDb details before entering this comment so may have some wrong name spellings. The show was just good clean innocent fun (TV Farce) that fit those times so well, but now would just look sooooo dated! I got married in 1975 and can still laugh at my enormous sideburns and platform shoes in the wedding photos. I thought I looked cool at the time, obviously! The humour was simple and the subject was interesting because it dealt with a father, on his own apart from a Nanny, coping with two teenage daughters.
