5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy!, 20 Jan 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mike Leigh: The BBC Collection [DVD] (DVD)
My boxed set arrived this morning and tonight I dived in. Greedily.
How many years since I last saw 'Grown Ups?' (Eek, not since the early eighties.) Yet some of the lines have echoed through our house for fun. ....

"Link my arm and call me Charlie"

"Can you spare an egg, Mand?"

"I want Mr Butcher!"

Brenda Blethyn has been praised and honoured for other roles, but her playing of the spinster sister Gloria is unbeatable, surely her finest work, and she steals the film.

I mean this as a compliment ...she even acts with her snot in the nervous breakdown scene.

Now for the moan, which is NOTHING to do with the quality of the plays:- The packaging of the DVD's is positively user-hostile. Who designed it? Why?
