Only just worthwhile,
This review is from: Steptoe & Son - Double Bill [DVD] (DVD)
These two films typify the problem of making a sitcom into a movie - length.
A sitcom, and "Steptoe & son" was a superlative sitcom, relies on well-defined characters in a well-defined situation facing little problems that seem big (or vice-versa). In a movie you expect something bigger - and in these you don't really get it.
I still think they're worth having, but for completeness and curiosity rather than sheer entertainment value.
