Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie: Blu Ray Review
Released by Universal Home Ent
Brendan O'Carroll's perenially popular Agnes Brown hits the big screen in this latest outing following series upon series of hits.
In this big screen spin-off, Mrs Brown has to do everything in her power to help protect the market stall she runs after a business-man reveals plans to knock it all down for a shopping centre.
I'll admit it - the Mrs Brown's Boys "comedy phenomenon" has somewhat passed me by.
I'm aware of the mass audience for the sitcom and those will be the fans who'll lap up this flick and its generally unfunny stylings. The jokes are predictable, can be seen a mile off and are distinctly unamusing. Sample line - a letter shows from the Tax office, which is in a brown envelope and cue Mrs Brown saying "at least it's the right colour for when I wipe my arse with it."
The problem is that you can rail all you want against this, but it'll find its viewers with its 1970s attitudes - it's a throwback in many ways, but you can't help but feel a little more effort in the scripts, its gags and a little less racism may have worked.
