Okay, I concede - it probably shouldn't have been a cinema release, but did it really deserve the amount of vitriol poured over it? Some people obviously think so, because The Harry Hill Movie took a royal bashing by the critics and quite a few audience members. Why? Well, it's blatantly obvious why - the movie is a 70's throwback (Replace Harry, Nan and Abu with The Goodies) that tries to please the whole family but is possibly too genteel for modern tastes yet too post-modern surreal for the older generations.

Well, I really liked it, but you sort of have to tune in to the wavelength in order to fully appreciate it. The humour is genuine Harry Hill - not the mainstream TV Burp - and more akin to his stage shows than his more well-known TV series. The acting is very good, the songs are great, it's certainly not 'boring' and even if it is slightly hit and miss, the hit ratio is certainly higher than the misses.

Maybe it's not nasty enough? It's lacking the more explicit vicious streak that creeps into Hill's comedy, but I quite liked Harry's almost uncaring nonchalance about anything in the story that didn't directly affect himself. His constant dismissal of Abu (and the pay off) is gleefully rotten and Harry comes across as a selfish (if strangely likeable) caricature of his comedy creation.

The film refuses to pander to the TV Burp crowd (no Knitted Character here) but maybe that link to past glories might have anchored the movie as it feels quite adrift in a free-form comedy universe that seems to be finding its feet.

I can't say you'll enjoy it as much as I did. Maybe you will, maybe you won't - but if you are willing to go with the flow and plug into the humour, there's a lot of fun to be had here.

Best kids movie I have ever seen - if you've got slightly alternative humour this will be right up your street. If not, you may not get it. Jim Broadbent's cameo role was comedy gold, the Magic Numbers were hilarious and Julie Walters was sensational. "What's Jesus backwards?" is one of my favourite comedy lines of all time. Watch it!

I really like Harry hills TV show. But this was just a horrendous movie, I love daft comedy's as a rule but this is one of them movies that is far from funny. I have laughed more watching zippy and bungle on rainbow. i am going to give this away for free as really don't want it in my collection.
Thankfully it never cost much to buy on Blu ray .
I reckon kids between 6 and 10 might enjoy it, But i personally couldn't handle anymore than 45 mins and had to turn it off.
If only i had some hair on my head i might have been able to pull it out with watching this garbage .
Sorry Harry but this was Dross !!!!!

If you don't like Harry's daft humour you wouldn.t buy this anyway. My wife and daughter (13) saw this at cinema and both enjoyed it, so got DVD for Christmas. As mad as you would expect, and probably funnier.

I have just finished watching this on a streaming service, and came here immediately to buy the Blu Ray! I absolutely loved it,didn't know what to expect, but was hooked in minutes. It's a combination of slapstick and surreal humour that gels wonderfully.If like me you'd been put off by all the negative reviews, give it a go you maybe surprised!

This is a really good family film, especially if you're a fan of the man himself.

It stars Harry Hill, Julie Walters, Matt Lucas, Jim Broadbent, Simon Bird, Sheridan Smith and a few other well known British faces and it is essentially a road movie involving a hamster (voiced by Jonny Vegas). If you like slapstick and one liners (usual of Hill's TV shows You've Been Framed and TV Burp) then you will probably like this as well.

It is aimed at kids but a few of the innuendous adult reerences are funny, and Walters steals the show as Hill's zany Nan.

purchased this movie in good faith it would be funny and enjoyable throughout (i love harry hill)

started off hilarious, watch out for simon bird as the vet (inbetweeners)

it was even okay when they started their visit to blackpool. what let me down was the constant storyline about the hamster (johny vegas), and the shell people (just what the?)

the songs were funny, but nothing that gets stuck in your head

good movie to pass the time

Gentle comedy with some decent musical numbers and notable turns from Julie Walters and Sheridan Smith,sure it doesn't make a lot of sense and it starts to run out of steam about half way through but it really doesn't deserve the critical kerb stomping it has received .
