Nuts in May is wonderful, but if you want a watchable copy, avoid the NTSC release at all costs. The transfer is absolutely ghastly - bootleg quality, to put it bluntly. It's such a pity the UK DVD seems to be out of print.

Was ever a man so aptly named? Mike Leigh cruelly names Social Services employee and veggie Keith Pratt in this hilarious and meandering comedy from the author of Abigail's Party. Keith and his wife Candice-Marie (Alison Steadman) journey to rural Dorset for what they hope will be a quiet and fulfilling camping holiday. Unfortunately, once esconced at Mrs.Beale's camp-site Keith and Candice-Marie are faced with having to deal with what they believe are lesser mortals; ie Ray, a PE Student, and a couple from Birmingham. The latter invoke Keith's ire by breaking not only the camp site rules but the country code by building a camp fire without his permission. He threatens to make a citizen's arrest but in the end is forced to restrain the Brummie holidaymaker with a branch. It all ends in tears, for Keith at least, and an early relocation of campsites. Alison Steadman is inspired as the trendy folkie who cleverly eggs on her husband while flirting with Ray and helping the Police with their enquiries into Keith's dangerously bald tyre. One can't help but sympathise with Roger Sloman's character as he stands up to the indifference of ordinary people to the countryside as well as their own health. If nothing else, this is great comedy, but as usual with Mike Leigh, there is brilliant incisive comment on human nature and society. Twenty five years on Keith may have been called an eco-warrior, yet here he is....well, a Pratt. Perhaps that's a little unfair, but watch this film anyway for wonderful views of Corfe Castle, a quarry with fossilised dinosaur footprints, Lulworth Cove, not forgetting the limestone steps, cliffs, a stone wall, some cows, ..........

I saw this on the box years ago and just fell about. Having the chance to see it again was great and even though it's now quite old, non of the magic is lost.
I don't think I shall ever forget Candice-Marie! And the husband!! We all know one. The writing is very clever because you swing from wanting to shoot the main characters to feeling sorry for them and then finding you agree with them! Wonderful, edgy and well worth the investment. You''l watch it more than once!

There's very little to be said about Nut's in May except that you need to watch it at least once before you die, and watching it once is never enough...

As someone who has enjoyed camping for many years, I watched this video and cringed! I had met all of these people on various campsites and had spent a good deal of my time trying to avoid them.
When Candice-Marie whinged to Keith about walking too quickly and not taking in the scenery I suddenly, to my horror, realised that I was watching myself.
I don't think anything has ever had me crying with laughter and embarrassment at the same time. It is absolutely brilliant!

Leigh works this 70 cult classic into a eco friendly masterpiece thats as relevant today as it was 20 years ago. Keith the overtly obsessive, vegetarian outdoor warrior plays the key role alongside his wife the misconstrued wall flower Candice-Marie. From the oppening shot of the couple singing their folk classic "I want to go to the zoo" up until the closing moments when Keith chases Onk the brummy biker round the camp site, you are left in awe at the sheer comical brilliance and observational asstuteness of both writer and performers.

I can't believe how good this film is. I've watched it countless times since I discovered it back in 1988, and yet STILL it has me howling out loud.
The sheer 'cringeworthiness' of the characters, and the seemingly mundane plot, mixed with Leigh's brilliance and the natural presence of the actors make for one heck of a great film.
On screen this film is so watchable, its characters so wonderful. In real life, though, I'd run a mile from all of these people.

This play is hilarious, I have watched this time and time again and Roger Slomans portrayal of Keith Pratt really makes me laugh over and over again. This is a play that really makes me feel for the charectors. Who hasn't felt as uncomfortable as poor Ray as Candice Marie and Keith urge him to join in with the Zoo song? Keith is really annoying, but when it comes down to it and he runs off after chasing Finger around with a branch you could easily cry with him.
Real charectors, Real situation, Real entertainment. BUY THIS NOW!!!!!
