Reviews

Reprising the television series roles which first made them household names, Richard Beckinsale and Paula Wilcox star as Geoffrey and Beryl, a hesitant, inexperienced, young couple attempting to negotiate the sexual minefield of the 'permissive' society. This big-screen transfer of Jack Rosenthal's hugely likeable sitcom sees old-fashioned girl Beryl continuing to slap down the advances of her frustrated boyfriend, whose clumsy attempts to initiate 'Percy Filth' suggest he's not quite up to speed himself! The Lovers! is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.


Like everyone else, Geoffrey and Beryl want to fall in love - or they think they do; like everyone else, since Adam and Eve. But Adam and Eve didn't live in Manchester in 1972...

I always liked the Lovers when it was on tv as a series years ago. I fancied Beryl, (Paula Wilcox) but she was so typical of the girls us boys used to encounter in those days. Didn't they just run rings around us, keeping us guessing and...making us work so hard? Anyway, that's the fun with this one, poor old Geoffrey is at his wits end trying to please Beryl. It's all the funnier because it's so accurate, that's how dating was then. Beryl does herself no favours because she upsets herself in the meantime, waiting for Geoffrey to phone after she has split up with him again. Even her mother tells her to get a move on. Well I and all the other guys will sympathize with Geoffrey and the women will be on Beryl's side. But, here we are, us men, trying to be adorable and for some reason unknown to us we always get it wrong. I had a good few laughs in this one and it seemed to be over so quickly.

Excellent picture and sound quality, and it is nice to see the old British Lion logo at the start. I'm giving this release five stars so it's very, very good. It COULD be perfect though. Network say it is presented in the original aspect ratio but if you select the feature from the main menu it will play in a cropped 1.78:1. The 1.37:1 has to be accessed from the special features. So, Network, the original aspect ratio version needs to be the default in future releases.
On the cover it says the movie was originally classed as an AA certificate by the BBFC. It would be nice to see that original certificate at the start of the movie. I remember AA was a bright blue card with AA in white numbers in a black box. So come on Network put these old certs on there and take us back in time to when we saw these movies in the cinema.

Again like other movies in this collection, this film is framed at 16:9 not 4:3 as stated on the cover. Care has been taken to ensure the picture and sound are as good as they can be for standard DVD and colour is strong and bright. The film itself is great fun
