Did You Know?


The red Jaguar E-TYPE or XKE that John drives Hattie home in when they first meet is a 2+2 model with a small rear bench seat and higher roof line. The tax disc in the window clearly shows that it expires in 1963. However the 2+2 model was only available from 1966. See more »

Not as good as I was hoping...
7 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching Hattie which is apparently a bio-pic about Hattie Jacques.

Now, the movie was average. But what annoys me with these bio-pics is they are supposed to be the life stories of the people they are filming about, but in most cases there is so much crap added that just isn't true.

But being a fan of the Carry On movies, I had to see it. I have seen the Kenneth Williams bio-pic and Cor Blimey! which were both quite good... but this just wasn't as good.

This movie was not really about her life, just about her affair with her much younger house mate. She still loves her husband and doesn't want him to move out even though he knows about the affair.

It is very uncomfortable to watch some scenes as it is quite sad to see her husband being treated the way he does. He seemed like a nice guy and just didn't want to lose his wife so was willing to share her!

There are a few scenes in the film that were re-created on the Carry On Cabby set, which was interesting to see and fun to watch. But all in all I was disappointed in the movie. I was hoping we would know more about Hattie and more about her life instead of just her sexual life.

I give this film 5 out of 10...

Not a bad movie, but not what I wanted a film to be. It really didn't have to be about Hattie Jacques, it could have been about anyone.
