Affectionate comedy

For my money the best of the Film Club trilogy about extraordinary characters doing mundane activities. A group of British wrestlers from its seventies/eighties heyday take the late night bus home in a gloomy town. Along the way they bicker and despite Big D's desire to "have no trouble" they are forced to battle various other wrestlers. I suspect the viewer needs to remember World of Sport or the scene to really enjoy this film. I loved the way the stage persona's of the wrestlers was recreated. Big D(addy)'s gruff but decent fatherly manner. Giant Haystacks' panto villain snarling. Kendo Nagsaki's silence and his relationship with his manager. The fights on the top of the bus were hilarious. But the best moment for me was Miranda Hart's cameo as Klondyke. The miserable nature of late night in a northern town was excellently captured. This film is the unexpected highlight on the Blake's Junction 7 DVD.
