Audience Member ok spin off. same gags and no Richard Beckinsale. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Probably not the series by any stretch, but one gets the impression that enough of Rising Damp: The Movie approximates that marvelously funny show that those who love the original will no doubt enjoy this final go-around for the original cast, while newcomers might be spurred to seek out the original. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member a awful film from a good TV sitcom most of the story is taken from the TV series so we already seen it it was just a movie cash in i bet a lot of people who paid to see it was well dissapointed every thing about it is bad from the acting to the direction to even the quality of the film print going by the quality of the film seen on TV not one for the actors cv Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member As stated in previous commets, Rising Damp the movie is just recycled material from the cult tv series. Watch the tv series and not the movie is my advice. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Its a very good movie in my opinion but it just uses parts of the tv series Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite being highly un-PC, still love me some Rising Damp. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
