As fans of the Carry-On films will know, British comedy of the 60s and 70s was extremely, extremely popular. 'Bless This House' is a classic example of a tradition not based on large budgets and extravagant settings, but on roar, honest and even predictable humor. Majoritively, people will find the comedy of 'Bless this House' to be innuendo after innuendo of cheek and naughtiness. Well, that is what made this type of film so funny and popular, as this type of behaviour was common of the time.
The most lovable rogue of the time, the legendary Sid james, leads his family through the hilarious highs and lows of redecorating, brewing your own spirits, and trying to get your son married to the girl next door. Boasting a stellar cast of the time including Terry Scott, Peter Butterworth and June Whitfield, 'Bless This House' shows us all why comedy doesn't always have to involve funny accents, silly faces and exaggeration. This is to be enjoyed as a reminder of a simple but much loved era of British Cinema.
Due to the saddening fact that Sid, Terry and Peter have all passed away, what is really missed by me here is a set of special features, they would have been great!
