We got this as a shot in the dark and thought it was really good and really funny. Well acted although I did not like her in "Vera" at all. Her role was lots different in this one, thank goodness. Another version of the fish-out-of-water story but we thought it worked.

★ Clever! Hilarious! Entertaining! Well acted, British movie !

A lot of the film is based around the Growing of LARGE QUANTITIES of Cannabis, to sell.
There is some smoking of both tobacco and Cannabis, in the film.

Some parts of the film are in a pub, where people are DRINKING.
People also drink casually, in other parts of the film.

A must see for "Doc Martin" and "Vera" fans. It reminded me a bit of "Hot Stuff" if you can remember 1979 and Dom DeLuise and Suzanne Pleshette' silly romp, you may like this. A lovely way to spend an evening--I also recommend having a cup of tea with the movie--but make it mint or green tea.

My mother loved it, and I loved it, though for slightly different reasons. Though few folk recommend discussing politics at a family gathering, this film may help break the ice on a topic worthy of consideration. The film celebrates silliness and human kindness, while also taking a, though white and privileged, relatively realistic look at how criminality comes from the few options available to those who are utterly desperate. This adorable British comedy bridges gaps between generations, classes, and nations, providing an opportunity for teens, adults, and elders to laugh together.

Hilarious. "I just love fresh tea."

Rated 7/10. Brenda Blethyn was definitely the star of this show and made it work into a pretty good comedy. Craig Ferguson couldn't have carried it off by himself.

Fun, clever, well acted, great story...and, best of all, it's British! Loved this movie!

If you like British humor, you'll like this film; otherwise, you won't. I loved Craig Ferguson and Brenda Blethyn in roles so different from where I've seen them the most (late night TV, or the BBC series "Vera"). It was lovely to have a good laugh at the British-style silliness.

Vicar: "If one has a problem - that seems to be unsolvable... then perhaps one shouldn't try to solve it. One should accept it." Nicky: "What do you mean?" Vicar: "God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change... Courage to change the things I can... and the Wisdom to know the difference." Nicky: "The Wisdom's the hard part."

Jacques: "All the people I deal with are scum. I'm a little scummy myself. You are not scum. That worries me." Grace: "I take exception to that. I come from a long line of scum. My dear husband was one of the scummiest men to walk the face of this earth." Jacques: "My apologies..."

Matthew: "I avoid confrontation. If you grew up in Glasgow in the 1970's you'd avoid confrontation too. All I want is an easy life. I want to grow some vegetables, smoke some weed, sing carols at Christmas time and who knows? One day I'd like to be a dad and raise a couple of f**king children. But that's it! I've had it! I've f**ing had enough. I'm going! No more Mr. Cuddly Toy! I'm not hanging around here to be a whipping boy for ganja Grace and captain Nicky the f**kin' lobster queen!"

Matthew (to Grace): "...With the greatest respect - I'm the hip one... you're a wee bit more 'hip replacement'..."

Vicar: "Do you have a stock portfolio perhaps?" Grace: "What's that?" Vicar: "I don't know... I just thought you might have one..."
