Pure NostalgiaBy a customer from London , 14 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Anybody who remembers the classic 70s TV Comedy series, will enjoy this. It Continues the comedy capers of the two siblings Eli and Nellie. I must admit the film is not as funny as the Series but still it has it's moments. Overall watchable and funny in parts.

Nearest but not so dearest.By Rob Hill from Durham , 09 Aug 2006In the seventies there was a fashion to translate to the big screen many of Britains finest and not so finest sit-coms. Some of these that made the transition were really good, such as Father Dear Father and Man about the House and some of these were real stinkers such as Are you being served and Bless this House although Bless This House is partially redeemed by a towering performance from Terry Scott, I would hire it just for that. Nearest and Dearest is one of the weaker efforts and I would mark this film down as one really for the purist. If you are a fan of either seventies comedy tie-ins or seventies sitcoms in general. If you like the sitcom then it is full of the standard Hylda Baker tongue twisters and mis-pronuniciations, a bit of innuendo, a bit of Jimmy Jewel as the lovable rogue Eli. The only difference over the sitcom is it is a little stretched out and the jokes become ever more laboured. It is hardly surprising this has rarely been shown on TV.
Nearest And Dearest (The Movie 1972)By a customer from North Wales , 08 May 2006Spin off movie from the Granada TV series. British comedy at it's very best. Us old 'uns who remember Hilda Baker and Jimmy Jewel from the 'Pledges' Pickles' sitcom will love it! I don't think there was anyone like Hilda Baker for getting her words so mixed up and out of context. Not quite as good as the TV series but still wonderful fun!
