Description

Penelope is truly a British treasure and should be given Damehood for her contributions to television comedy.

Marge tells her, that she hasn't actually read Bridget Jones' diary, HF replies that it's perfectly OK, as long as they all bought a copy, then leaps out the door in a wild police chase (on foot) in fast-motion accompanied by the music from Benny Hills ditto chases. B. worked their 'unlikely ladies double act' off perfectly, with Penelope's slightly snobbish employer of June's cleaner character.With the police, led by about-to-retire Detective Inspector Woolley ( Roger Lloyd-Pack) on their trail, the two women drive to Fleetwood, only to meet the childhood friend. Going around the country accidentally avoiding the police and leaving a trail of crimes when they were innocent of any crimes to start with. However, with money short and Gladys needing medication, the duo is forced into a surprisingly full-blown crime spree, proving more than a match for an unlikely pair of policemen, Detective Inspector Woolley and Detective Sergeant Stringer. As the police net tightens around them, the two very different, mature ladies are propelled on a shared voyage of self-discovery as skeletons fall from the closets forcing both women to reflect on their past lives.

A neglected housewife makes an unexpected friend at a nursing home, where she hears a true tale about an independent woman in 1920s Alabama, who ran the town diner, served food to people of color and protected her sister-in-law from an abusive spouse.For those who know Penelope Keith only as Margo or Audrey from TV, her dramatic moments in this film will be a real eye-opener. Because the intruder was attacked from behind, a controversial court decision found Martin guilty of homicide; he served 18 months in prison before the conviction was changed to manslaughter and he was released with time served.

Together, over a period of several months, they pursue a mutual sexual passion whose inevitable stages unfold in counterpoint to nine live-concert songs. The proliferation of channels has led to fragmentation of the audience and a general shortage of money for quality programs. June Brown has had a long stint as chain-smoking whinger Dot Cotton on 'EastEnders': unlike Ms Keith, in real life June Brown *is* a great deal like her most well-known role. A bit slapstick, a bit naughty, a bit far fetched but above all, led by protagonists that you can actually relate too. Believing that she has killed him, she panics and flees the house with Gladys, leaving behind her handbag.Britain has had a long history of mainly 'gentle' if somewhat bawdy comedies committed to celluloid. Instead of Texas highways, their getaway takes Margery and Gladys across the secondary B-roads of the Midlands, en route to sanctuary in (wait for it) Milton Keynes. After all, a neighborhood watch meeting recently warned home owners that British laws do not favor them when they defend their homes and lives. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I watched it last night and although it had its funny moments this reworking of the 'Odd Couple' began to sag after an hour.
