Keeping Mum DVD,
This review is from: Keeping Mum [DVD] (DVD)
If you like typically British comedy then this is it. Dry, witty and amusing this is simply brilliant. It's one of those comedy lines that you have to concentrate on if you haven't seen it before but, on repeated viewings there is always something new... a bit like a good book really. The DVD contains lots of special features as well... directors commentary, behind the scenes interviews and extra footage. All very informative.
A great cast includes Rowan Atkinson, Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott Thomas and unusually Patrick Swayze. I found Maggie Smith's performance as Mum simply delightful. Patrick Swayze takes on an unusual role but it works well.
The film contains some adult content and language but it's sensibly rated at 15.
Great British comedy at it's best with a clever plot.
All in all an excellent buy and great value with all the extras.
