Films: R is for...

Rising Damp

Cocked-up beyond redemption film of the series. Say what you like about Porridge: The Movie, but at least that had Richard Beckinsale in it. Here Christopher Strauli joins the remaining cast traipsing through a patchwork of old TV show plots and lines of dialogue to zero effect. Even Denholm Elliot and Derek Griffiths don’t help matters much. And Rigsby gives away his Christian name at the end, which is just wrong.

    It had breasts in it, though.

    The Saturday Night Fever parody sequence was alright.
