Product Description

A big-screen outing for the regular cast of the popular 1970s sitcom. The Abbott family (Sid James, Diana Coupland, Robin Askwith and Sally Geeson) are in a state of permanent feud with their neighbours the Baines (Terry Scott and June Whitfield). It soon transpires that the Abbott's son and the Baines' daughter are romantically involved, so the scene is set for sneaking around in spotty boxer-shorts, food-fights and chaotic dashes to the Church.

Format: DVD
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!

This triple pack of DVD's is excellent value for money. I would highly recommed it to anyone who used to watch these TV sitcoms in the 70's. I guarantee that you won't stop laughing. These movies prove that the comedy of yesteryear is still the best.

Format: DVD
In the 70s, a TV show only really had to get slightly positive reviews and it was a dead cert that a movie spin-ff would be forthcoming. Here we see the ITV comedy transformed to the big screen by the producers of the Carry On series.

The TV show was an example of how realxing and enjoyable TV used to be, before everything, including comedy, started to take itself all so seriously. And here Sid is replicating his part of the eternal family man splendidly.

Dave Freeman writes the script and I'm afraid it here that some of the points are knocked off. Writing a 25 minute show is one thing, but trying to stretch that over to 85 minutes is more of a challenge. Especially where there are more limitations that there were, for example, on his brilliant Carry on Behind. There's just a teensie bit too much of the old slapstick and there's even a food fight at one point.

Another huge bugbear is that Anthony Jackson is not in it. I can understand not including Robin Stewart from the series. You get an impression that he was always a better TV actor than film actor for some reason. But Jackson could quite easily have reprised his role and I think would have done far better than Peter Butterworth. Butterworth almost seems aware of this as he delivers his most sterile performance ever.

That said, it is hard to not like anything with Sid in it so this gets a respectable 3 stars.

Once again, nice to see on DVD, but this is only the colour episodes from the first series......I presume Clear Vision didnt think the B/W episodes would sell.......dont they understand ANYONE spending there money on a classic show like this would wish to see the COMPLETE SERIES 1....B/W episodes as well as colour....once again no Thamles logo ...no adcaps which result in some edits being made.....your better off purchasing the Australian release which is PAL, region free set over 2 discs and includes all these extras !!!

This film was on TV during Christmas 1990, and I didn't intend to watch it, but I saw the first five minutes, and was hooked. I liked it so much that every time I went to any shop selling videos/dvd's, I would hunt for it. Thankfully Amazon saved me hunting any further.
This film lacks the subtlty of modern films, or the in-your-face crudeness of American Pie etc, but you do get a load of classic Carry-On style moments. Sid James is the funniest I've ever seen him, and playing against Terry Scott's straight-laces middle class role, he shines even brighter. Robin Askwith also makes a complete fool of himself on more than one occassion.
All the way through writing this review I've been smiling to myself as I recount some of the classic scenes. This film is 70's comedy, neatly wrapped up into 85 minutes of shiny dvd. I love it!

sid james is the kind of person who you wish was still here today,there was just something about the man which makes you smile,the face and the yak yak laugh was made for fish & chips style british comedy. bless this house the movie is still a good laugh,sid plays "sidney abbott" the head of the abbott household,his main problems in life revolve around his two kids mike & sally (robin askwith & judy geeson) who constantly cause him loads of trouble. there's lots of funny moments in the movie,i like the scene where sid has a cake fight with his snooty neighbour (played by the great "terry scott") other good performances come from peter butterworth,june whitfield and patsy rowlands. it's a good spin off from the still funny bless this house tv series,if you like sid james then you'll love this.
