Curious that the most filmic of British sitcoms made for such a televisual film. The gents admirably try to steer clear of sitcom movie cliches, but in doing so merely shore up a gaggle of metafictional fragments that neither cohere thematically or tonally i.e. many of the characters feel like bizarre 2-dimensional simulations of their television counterparts, which is clever, but disappointing. A damp worthy mess.
A strange film to close a great TV comedy series. The characters from the TV series being brought into their creators world, is interesting but it merely just caricatures the great characters from the TV series. The film as none of the twisted genius from the TV series, a very flat and disappointing film in comparison.
