FantabulousBy rikardiso from Kent , 01 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I've been a fan of Are You Being Served for years. I love this feast of double entendre over 90 odd minutes.
Some of the jokes were recycled from episodes from the series but it was refreshing to see them displayed in a new environment in Costa Plonka.
I recommend this movie.

Great stuffBy VirginSurgeon (9 reviews) from Feltham , 27 Feb 2006Enjoyed this film very much, you can't beat good old British humour. Brought back a lot of memories when I used to watch this series during the 70's.
Watch it and let the nostalgia flood back.
1970s TV comedyBy a customer from Cardiff, Wales , 30 Aug 2005Bright, lively and as tasteless as the 70s decade, 'Are You Being Served? -- The Movie' combines many familiar themes from the TV series: the youngest viewer in this household remarked that he had never heard so many innuendos in such a short time before! The plot is predictably unlikely: Grace Brothers Department Store is closing for a complete refit, and the management are sending all the staff away on all-expenses paid holidays while the decorations are in progress. The staff from Ladies and Gentlemen's clothing are being sent to the Costa Plonka. The first part of the film follows various mishaps in the store during preparations for departure; we then follow our 'friends' on their journey by air to Spain, where they discover that the hotel (run by Andrew Sachs, famous as Manuel in 'Fawlty Towers'), has overbooked and that they will have to spend the first night of their stay sleeping in tents. Certain members of the team decide that this is their opportunity to get close to other members of the team, and a restless night is spent by all. The stay is enlivened by clashes with the German guests, problems with the lavatories, a delightfully lumpy caterpillar-type bug in the bed and an abortive revolutionary plot which results in the hotel becoming a battleground. Classic British seaside postcard humour: funny if you like it, to be avoided if you don't.
