From Amazon.co.uk

The TV equivalent of comfort food, Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft's 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served? was British end-of-the-pier humour personified: a half-hour dose of smutty innuendo and amiable grotesques, with the jokes essentially unchanged from one week to the next. Founded on the country's class system (symbolised by the imperious Captain Peacock and grotty cleaner Mr Mash) and its appalling reputation as a service culture, the show became a popular hit, and ran for eight seasons. Though more riotously camp than anything previously seen on TV, John Inman's Mr Humphries (the show's most famous creation) was just about the most sexless character here, overshadowed by Mr Lucas's permanently unrequited lust for pert Miss Brahms in ladies' apparel--or even the philandering of Young Mr Grace, with his string of nubile secretaries, who looked as if they'd been plucked straight from the pages of Mayfair. The true star of the series, however, remained mercifully off-screen: Mrs Slocombe's much-talked-about pussy. Whether damp (after being caught out in the rain) or frozen solid (the day the central heating broke down), it effectively defined this show's brand of humour: bawdy yet curiously innocent, playful yet deeply conservative. In this box set (which is in fact a large metal tin containing two tapes and even a glove puppet of the aforementioned moggy) there are six entirely characteristic episodes: Mrs Slocombe's underwear causes friction ("Wedding Bells"), her age is debated, as is that of her pussy ("50 Years On"), and a Greek banjo player pops the question ("Do You Take This Man?"). Ironically, the show hasn't aged in the slightest, because it was never remotely contemporary. --Andrew McGuire

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?'

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

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!!

Having viewed and enjoyed just about every episode of the Are You Being Served? TV show, I finally got down to seeing the movie recently. While it had a smattering of mild-to-moderately entertaining moments and a few snickers here & there, overall it wasn't quite "up to snuff" (as it were) in the laughs department when compared to the series it was based on. Sadly, a great deal of the gags and banter were lifted (or slightly modified) from various eppies of the TV show, but were not executed quite as well this time around. Even the obligatory stock gags (e.g. allusions to Mr. Humphries' alleged... er... fluffiness, Mr. Lucas' endless array of smart-aleck remarks & lustful leering at Ms. Brahms, Mrs. Slocombe's feline companion, etc.), which usually kill me every time they pop up on the telly series, didn't do much for me here.
On the upside: at least I finally got to see the Grace Bros. staff outside their usual environment, something I seldom saw in their small-screen misadventures. And it was also interesting to see how AYBS looks on a movie budget-- which apparently isn't too different from what it normally looks on a TV budget. From what I can gather, the only real diffs are the widescreen format, a better film stock, and the lack of a laugh track...
Bottom line: if you're a fairly close follower of the Are You Being Served? TV show but haven't seen this yet, this is worth at least a rental... if only to sate your curiosity. Otherwise, the AYBS movie ain't exactly what I'd consider a "keeper". And I am unanimous in this opinion, by the way...

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!

This film starts out in a rather rickety replica of the men's and ladies' fashion departments from the original BBC series. It had me put off from further viewing. Over time I gave it another go and I must say, it wasn't as bad as I'd expected. Once the cast is away from the inferior props and safe in Costa Plonka the characters regain some of their original composure. In the seaside hotel they resume their sexual innuendoes and double entendres. Some even fully copied from the original series. Instead of the canned laughter, airport-lounge-music plays throughout the film, not enhancing the tongue in cheek humor. It is the sheer craftmanship of all the cast which makes this film worthwile. Leads Molly Sudgen, Wendy Richard, Frank Thornton, Arthur Brough, Trevor Bannister, John Inman and Nicolas Smith played alongside Andrew Sachs, aka Manuel from 'Fawlty Towers' and succeeded in making the most of the mediocre storyline and the - presumably - low budget. Spoiler: Even on the Spanish coast, young Mr. Grace turns up unexpectedly, rewarding the staff with his hallmark words; 'You've all done very well!'.

I enjoyed this movie. It was funny and could hold our attention throughout the movie. If you need a laugh buy this.
