This TV comedy was one of the funniest sitcoms of all time, however, the movie was not. The script is just a load of old gags from the series glued together with no real story. Christopher Strauli is also a poor replacement for the late Richard Beckinsale and, although funny in parts, was a complete waste of time making.
