Product Description

The brick-by-brick account of building a young couple's dream house. From the day when the site is first selected, to the day--several years and children later--when the couple finally move in, the story is a noisy but wordless comedy of errors as the incompetent labourers struggle to complete the house.

In this satirical look at British builders, many cups of tea are made, windows are broken and the same section of road is dug up over and over again by the water board, the electricity board, and the gas board.

Ronnie Barker's put-upon cement mixer, Peter Butterworth's short-sighted carpenter and Bernard Cribbins' dyslexic stonemason all contribute to the ensuing chaos.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last............. 17 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
Great that this is finally available on DVD. Been waiting for this for years. Apparently it gets played on German television every Christmas- why not here?? Anyway no need to worry about that anymore.

The Rice Crispies scene gets me all the time. You must see this.

Wonderful stuff, we'll miss you Ronnie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 10 Feb 2011
By Roy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This isn't the movie I laughed at many years ago. Many of the scenes that I remember are missing.Like arrival on site and positioning of the toilet for the Foreman. Like the timing of the utilities with one disappearing around the corner just as the other arrives. The reason for Ronnie Barker swimming in his lovely concrete wasn't the architects car! it was the unmanned dumper that veered off at the last second. When the carpenter finally left the site they needed extra transport for the horses he'd destroyed. What's happened? This is a pale imitation of the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Silent Comedy 12 Sep 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A suprisingly fresh and funny comedy featurette with scores of familiar British comedy actors(Bernard Cribbins,Peter Butterworth,Richard Briers,and most memorably,Ronnie Barker)which works all the better being silent with an accompanying music score.There's a pleasant bonus with an interview with the film's producer Bob Kellett,although it is rather pointlessly filmed in black and white.Still worth buying,though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A simple but funny comedy 16 Mar 2011
By Alan James "Maebuschfan" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This early 60's, black and white comedy runs for a little over 41 minutes, and features a host of familiar comedy actors of the time. This short film contains no dialogue, only background music and sound effects, and the occasional incomprehensible muttered remarks which all adds to the cheerful atmosphere.

There's a varied collection of characters that make up the gang of comical builders, including Ronnie Barker, who becomes increasingly frustrated at seeing his work ruined.
Bernard Cribbins also stars as a stonemason who repeatedly messes up with the chisel, while Bill Fraser finds himself desperately trying to spend a penny.
The story revolves around a funny collection of sight gags. For those who enjoyed the Eric Sykes comedy "The Plank", this is well worth a look.

Picture quality is good, the only extra is an interview with director Bob Kellett.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Silent British Classic 18 Jan 2011
By K600
Format:DVD
This film has been going for years, since the early 1960s. Although some of the humour is very much of its time its over-all appeal is timeless and very relevant to the modern building trade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Home of Your Own 6 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
Unfortunately, because the humour is so aged now, it didn't seem to be as amusing as I was hoping. It is good but so predictable!

Bought it on basis of Ronnie Barker being highlighted. Tedious to the point of being unwatchable and not at all funny.
