Product Description

Product Description

Patrick Cargill stars as the head of a household with more than its fair share of misunderstandings! After divorcing his wife, Patrick Glover decides it is time to remarry, and chooses his literary agent, only to mistakenly propose to the cleaning lady. Part of his reason for wanting to remarry is to regain some control over his wayward daughters, but they and their lovers continue to complicate his home and his life... A farcical comedy full of hilarious confusions, this feature-length version of hit sit-com Father, Dear Father is a real gem of British humour at its best.

Like several 70's sitcoms, this series doesn't lend itself comfortably into the transition to cinema film. The lead actors of Father (Patrick Cargill), Nanny (Noel Dyson) and ex-wife Barbara (Ursula Howells) put in comfortable performances whilst the two young daughters have only a limited input in their brief appearances. As far as this film version is concerned I feel they were there more for style than substance. It adheres well to the TV series using several of the already screened senarios but lacks the pace and punch of the short show format. This version is a no frills release, with no extras or accompanying notes. However, it does still represent good value for money for these reasons. Patrick Cargill was a marvelous character actor, equally at ease with comedy or straight roles. Also, for its part this show was actually ahead of its time. Single father raising 2 teenage daughters...examining the sexual revolution, gender stereotypes, adolescence, female equality and much more; virtually unheard of in the early 70s. If you're one for nostalgia, or have interest in seeing life in the change over period from the 60's to 70's then this is a film for you. If however, you want a really funny movie of star-studded, side-splitting humour then I'd give this one a miss. At times it is silly, full of sentimentality but it's charming all the same. Maybe the years have played tricks with my memory but I thought that the TV series was much funnier at the time than this film portrays.

I used to watch Father Dear Father many years ago. The feature film, however, is very funny and a must for all Father Dear Father fans. Patrick Gargill, Anne Holloway and Natasha Pyne with Noel Dyson who plays the very innocent nanny are a delight. Richard O'Sullivan (Man About The House) plays the dim wit boyfriend who tries to elope with the younger daughter played by Anne Holloway. The van he uses breaks down and Patrick Gargill helps to fix it without realising his daughter is involved. Meanwhile he is due to marry his agent which turns out to be a farce because they both don't want to marry and discover this at the church! Patrick has another problem - his ex wife has left her husband and wants to seek refuge at his house! Patrick's mother who is hard of hearing also tickles the funnybone when she mis-hears what is being said to her over the phone. In the end Patrick doesn't marry his agent, the youngest daughter doesn't elope and Patrick's ex wife goes back to her husband! - I can't wait for the DVD to be issued so I can view it over and over again instead of waiting for it to be shown on TV!

So glad this is finally coming out on DVD. I've been checking every month or two for the last 2-3 years for this! If you like the series or are a fan of 70's comedies, then you'll be able to enjoy this, time and time again. Thank you Network... and Amazon, who are excellent as always!

4 stars for the film itself.This was surprisingly witty and fast moving.Plenty of plots to keep the brew going and quite a few British stalwarts guest starring.Actually tought it was an improvement on the tv series.1 star for the picture quality and am contacting Network DVD about this.

Many UK series from the 1960s/70s had a cinematic movie or three attached to them, and the movies varied in satisfaction level. Some, such as the George and Mildred movie are dreadful. Some like the Are You Being Served movie are watchable (just about). Others were as good as the series or even better. This is one of the best and is easily as good as the much loved series. If you love the series you WILL love this movie. Don't hesitate, buy it!
