5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun 31 May 2009
Yes they're back, all your favourite characters in this one off special. This special picks up from where the second series finished. Mel has been taken to hospital, and Mick has been arrested for hitting him. The 'Oracle' is eventually found after nearly wiping out a German family and is rushed to hospital as well. Janice wants to visit Mick in the police cells and Madge wants to visit Mel in the hospital, but when they can't get a taxi Madge takes things into her own hands and manages to get a lift from a stranger, all she can think about is that it won't cost her.

Whilst Janice and Mel are being taken in the car Mick is released from the police station and Mel decides to discharge himself from hospital, followed by the 'Oracle'. What Janice and Madge don't know is that the person whose car they got into is wanted by the police for a murder, and are thus taken hostage. The kidnapper decides to take them back to their hotel room and hold them there, but when Madge shouts for help from the balcony of their room things get out of hand. The men make their way up to the room to save the two women, whilst the police are called in. Can the men save the women? Can the police save everyone? Or will Mel who seems to have become Bruce Willis' dad save the day?

This is an hilarious one-off of the great tv comedy, and when the persons involved in the action are offered a free holiday things are left open for a third series. If you have never seen the first two series you don't know what you have been missing. You needn't to have seen the second series to watch this, but it would be helpful if you have, then you will know exactly who everyone is and the storyline that led up to this special. All in all this is a great laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Benidorm special 1 Jun 2009
I had never seen Benidorm before this so I thought I would tune in. I am so glad I did. The script is funny, the characters are very funny and the whole plot is just hilarious. I shall be purchasing the DVDS of series 1 and 2 shortly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the series 3 Jan 2010
Having seen all the series was a bit concerned this wouldn't make the grade. Wrong! it was great. It reflects Benidorm at its best and its worst. Wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars More bellies and laughs... 4 Jun 2009
By The Country Grumpkin VINE VOICE
As expected, plenty of laughs from this one-off special - though no doubt there'll be more to follow. Subtle? Nah! We don't do subtle in Benidorm, I'm happy to say.

The allusion to No Country For Old Men was an interesting touch, with the air cannister, though fortunately for us here, Benidorm doesn't do grim either.

The twist at the end was neat - and yep, another good laugh.

Oooh, can't wait to get back there to see Sticky Vicky et al!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun 1 Jun 2009
By Sue M
Yes i understand what the previous person is saying, but you need to take the show as a bit of fun and i believe it did this. The story was funny and the characters all still there, and i don't think there are many TV shows that really make me laugh out loud, so if you want to relax and watch something that will put a smile on your face and take you out of reality for a bit chose this DVD.
