A final fling for TV's favourite couple!,
By A Customer
This review is from: George And Mildred [VHS] (VHS Tape)
For fans of classic seventies sit-com - or fans of British comedy in general - the film version of "George and Mildred" is a must! Featuring familiar jokes in the style of the "Carry On" films it is simple, harmless humour at it's best with a good dose of sexual innuendo thrown in. Unlike many film versions of sit-coms, "George and Mildred" lives up to the standards that made the TV series so popular. Mildred is still desperate for romance and George is still desperate to avoid it. In an attempt to win him round, Mildred decides on a second honeymoon at the London Hotel. Somehow the bumbling George is mistaken for a hit-man. Chaos, car chases and shoot-outs ensue, with the Roper's blissfully unaware of their predicament. A fine supporting cast including Stratford John, Kenneth Cope, Harry Fowler and Dudley Sutton help the film along and ironically it was the last time the Ropers were seen together on screen since Yootha Joyce (Midred) died before the film was released.
Ideal Sunday afternoon viewing, "George and Mildred" will tickle your funny bone and allow you to spend two hours in the comfort zone of a television classic.
