Mrs Browns Boys D’ Movie – Review

I am a huge fan of Mrs Browns boys and own all dvds of the show.  From the 3 series, to Christmas specials to the live shows.  I was quite excited to hear they’d done a movie but wasn’t really something I’d go to the cinema to watch.  One day while shopping I decided to buy the blu ray and well it’s not often I do a film review but here it is.

What’s it all about?

 

When market-trader Agnes Brown finds her stall under threat from a ruthless developer, she and her family embark on a campaign to save their livelihood, aided only by a motley troop comprising Buster’s blind trainee ninjas, a barrister with an unhelpful affliction, and Grandad’s elderly friends. As daughter Cathy turns her back on the family business and unwanted secrets emerge from Agnes’s past, could the Brown matriarch finally be out of her depth? It’s sink or swim for Agnes in Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie.

 

Thoughts

After watching this the first time I felt like it lacked something that every other Mrs Browns Boys episode had.  At first I couldn’t put my finger on it but the second time round I watched the film, the penny dropped. Most of the jokes had already been done in the series. I was expecting fits of laughter but it never came.  The series has tonnes of scenes with some kind of antics that wasn’t meant to happen on unexpected and well the film lacked this…

This post isn’t about taking anything away from the hard work the guys have put in, I just think that maybe they should of left it a little longer before doing a movie.  If you’ve been holding out to buy the DVD I’d wait till it comes down in price.

Even if the laughs weren’t up to the series did have an entertainment factor so with this in mind 7/10.   Lets hope if there is a second movie we see more spontaneousness like the series :).

What’s next?

With Christmas coming around the corner and a couple of years of very funny specials I am looking forward to this years Christmas special.   I wonder where they’ll take it this year?
