Writers Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft managed something quite clever with this, the film version of the 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served?. The idea of this cheery collection of comedy stereotypes--the pompous one, the vulgar one, the camp one, the shifty one and so on--being confined within a department store was a master stroke, as it allowed any kind of situation to arise without the plot having to exceed the restrictions imposed by the set. How, then, to keep the same theme for the big screen without just offering the television series writ large? Simple: send the whole cast on holiday together but make sure they can't leave their hotel, a state of affairs contrived easily enough by throwing a guerilla uprising into the plot.

So it is, then, that the staff of Grace Bros. descend on the Costa Plonka while the store is closed for refurbishment. There are all the usual jokes involving knickers, boobs, toilets and gay sex (sometimes all at once), adding up to a good slice of nostalgic fun for anyone who was there when lapels really were that wide. Incidentally, this item is worth having just for the wonderful Frank Langford caricatures on the cover.

On the DVD: Are You Being Served? comes to the digital format with just one extra item, a trailer.--Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Free... 20 April 2002
By A Customer
The true comedy of 'Are You Being Served' is captured in this film. The same jokes, people and laughter is all included in this marvellous adventure, where the staff go on holiday.
While the start of the film is instore at Grace Bros, the rest of the film is at the Costa Plonka, where the antics continue further.
Great comedy, and just as good as the original series, a must see for all 'Are You Being Served Fans?'

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic sitcom comedy 8 May 2007
This is a classic, with the cream of the comedy world, who better than the late, great John Inman, the fantastic talents of Frank thornton, Nicholas Smith, Trevor Bannister, Mollie Sugden and Wendy Richard!!!

A classic comedy caper, which sees the staff of Grace Borthers wind up in Spain in the middle of a Civil War! Hilarious comedy fun with the gang, a true legend of comedy and a must have for any Are you being served fans!!

I have always liked Are you being served? with all the quirky one liners, they were all really good actors sadly only two are still alive, it just makes you feel like you should want to go abroad.

Treated myself to this dvd seen this film hundreds of times many reviewers say this film is bad maybe so i brought it so i can watch it at weekends when theres not much on the box.
as it is 33years old its good to watch the talents of the much missesd actors such as john inman,wendy richard,arthur brough,arthur english,mollie sugden,harold bennet(the oldest actor on the film)talents that cannot be replaced
the programme itself is very funny and it has funny moments and the gags and punch lines are sharpe cannot imagine i was a year old when this film came out dont know why they didn't show this at christmas. still at least the pilot episode of are you being served was shown
so we should'nt grumble at that. the dvd is good pity they didn't put extras on the dvd like they put on the carry on films like info on the actors location filming etc.i rate this at 5 stars have been after this dvd for some time now that i own it will be watching it alot

5.0 out of 5 stars Great old-fashioned comedy! 30 Aug 2008
As spin off movies from TV comedies go - 'Are You Being Served' was fun. Stars all the cast from the hit TV series - and most of the jokes!

Mollie Sugden is at her usual best, but there's only a couple of 'pussy' jokes. The misunderstanding regarding the passing around of a love note at the table is terribly amusing which leads to an awful lot of hilarious 'activity' during the night!

This comes from an age when comedy did not have to be 'sophisticated or complex in order to make people laugh - simple and funny, and still entertains - even today.

Great fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Carry On Are You Being Serviced 8 Nov 2010
When Young Mr. Grace sends the staff of Grace Brothers to Costa Plonka on vacation while the store is being remodeled, they find the accommodations less than they expected, including being at the center of a revolution.

Based on the popular television series, and utilizing the same actors, Are You Being Served? The Movie has a very different feel from the former. It is partly the difference in filming techniques from little screen to big screen.

OK, it's creaky, incredibly dated, and the sets (or was there just one set?!) are wobbly, but that's all part of the charm. It's also quite perceptive of the attitude of the British abroad, that still persists to this day. My friends and I always seem to end up quoting from this film when we go abroad!

The best scene has to be when the myopic Ernest Grainger, who's never been on a plane before, enters what he thinks is the lavatory (it's actually the cockpit). 'Oh, I'm sorry - will you be long?' he says to the pilot. 'About two hours' replies the pilot. 'Oh dear- I'll go to the other end' replies Mr Grainger. Absolutely priceless!

Intellectual it isn`t,just a good belly laugh start to finish.All the old jokes double entendres and inuendo filled camp humour that made the tv show so popular for more than a decade.Inman sugden thornton & co at their funniest.Cheeky irreverant and pollitically incorrect.Enjoy!
