      James Evans Starburst It's entirely predictable comedy but none the worse for it. Though there's absolutely nothing compelling about the film, it's inoffensive stuff that's likely to please fans and convert no one else. Rated: 5/10 Feb 26, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member An amusing spin off from the popular tv series. Housing developers wish to knock down the houses but the tennants fight back, despite Mr Roper's best efforts to get his grubby little mits on the money! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable movie offshoot of the outstanding 70s Britcom. All of the old favourites are in it. Robin plays strip poker with the girls in hope of getting lucky. Whereas the TV series was featured mostly in the residence, we get to see Robin at work as a trainee chef and it has the cast all outside a bit more. Good fun for sure, but it's not up to the standard of the TV series. The comic talents of George, Mildred and Larry are a bit wasted in the movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Above average TV spin off produced by Hammer Films. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Has a different feel to it than the show - inferior for sure, but still one of those movies you can't be too hard on. None of the great UK 70's sit coms really translated that well to feature length movies, but if you liked the show, this is still worth a look. More of the same, just recycled into a movie, but still fun to see how young they all look here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Some sit-coms should just be left in their television slot, and this is one example. Unfunny and only a semblence of a plot, it's no more than an excuse to have a long badly written episode put onto film for eternity. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable reflection of easier times when you could park your car right outside your house in Maida Vale and there was hardly any traffic in London.
