Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie (2014)
This movie is certainly made for the fans alone and as much as I tried I could not get into it. Don’t get me wrong, this film is fine enough to watch throughout and it certainly is not the worst movie in the world. However, for a comedy it felt like it missed the mark 😛 . I have watched a few episodes of the popular television show and can see it is funny 🙂 . It can make me laugh but this movie struggled a lot. The concept of the narrative is passable but not very exciting and the “corpsing” in the movie wasn’t very good for the flow of the film. The stereotyping of the Chinese and Russians was very bad (especially the Chinese) and was rather cringe worthy to see. The opening scene was alright compared to the rest of the movie and the outtakes in the end credit were quite funny 😀 . The acting is not good, the jokes old and I really was not captivated. It feels like the format of this show does not work as a movie as it over stretches to the point of boredom. Where the story and humour that Brendan O’Carroll can create in 30 minute sitcom may work but cannot translate to the big screen. Mrs. Brown’s Boys is not my cup of tea and I have only seen the odd one when it was on TV. Now I may be actively avoiding this because the movie has certainly put me off 😛 . This one is for fans only if they can cope with its simple storyline but otherwise I would say not to watch this movie 😛 . Enjoy if you can 🙂
I give this film 1.5 Stars out of 5!
