Sandra, newly minted Lady Abbott in her lawyer husband Mike Abbott having been knighted, does whatever needed to present a perfect upper crust life and marriage, including maintaining a proper decorum. Older Bif is the carefree one, living for the moment, including not caring that her council estate apartment in inner city London is a pigsty, just as long as she can find whatever she needs.

Why don't they make more films like this?!
9 February 2018 | by suelavenderSee all my reviews

It's been years since I enjoyed brilliant British comedies like The Full Monty, Calendar Girls, Four Weddings, East is East and thankfully this is one of them. Very funny, very moving but sent me out of the preview screening literally tapping my feet with a smile on my face! Not often you get to say that when you visit your local cinema. Love it and would highly recommend!
