British Comedy Classics 4 – Man About The House, George & Mildred, Father, Dear Father

The big-screen film adaptations from the popular Thames’ sitcoms.

MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE Catering student Robin Tripp sees nothing unusual about sharing a flat with two girls, Chrissy and Jo. Indeed it works well except when his flat mates try their hand at cooking or his natural male urges get the better of him.

GEORGE & MILDRED Televisions most famous bickering couple, George & Mildred Roper, graduate to the big screen in this 1980 feature length comedy. Mildred’s planned wedding anniversary celebrations go hilariously sour when George is mistaken for a hit man. This leads to comic chaos and misunderstandings as only George & Mildred can provide!

FATHER, DEAR FATHER Patrick Glover is a thriller novelist renowned for being a bit of a womaniser. Despite divorcing his wife, he rarely gets the chance to put his ideas into practice thanks to his two teenage daughters providing constant cause for concern, along with their live-in Nanny, his dotty mother ex-wife, and a lazy Saint Bernard named H.G. Wells.

DVD release date 17th of November.
