The Harry Hill Movie

1

Harry's big-screen burp...

“This will wipe the smile off your face!” cackles Harry Hill’s evil twin (Matt Lucas) in a throwaway vehicle for the bespectacled comedian that spends 88 surreally unfunny minutes doing precisely that.

Awash with silliness – gun-toting chickens, performing Dachshunds, Jim Broadbent in charlady drag – yet weirdly bereft of mirth, it’s a rag-bag of skits, parodies and half-hearted gross-out whose plot – Harry heads to Blackpool to save his hamster – is barely that.

Director Steve Bendelack previously gave us Mr Bean’s Holiday and The League Of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse. Like those films, this is another TV-to-cinema leap where bigger really doesn’t mean better.

      Just watched The Harry Hill Movie. I sat there with a huge smile on my face for the full running time and was thoroughly entertained, but - to be honest - there's only a few big laughs along the way and in no way can it justify it's feature film status. It could have been a perfectly acceptable TV special or even a series. It's also lumbered with a painfully bad 'comedy score' that craps over the surreal mood (if any film deserved no score to it's advantage, it was this). Saying that, it's very entertaining and the 90 minutes zipped by. There's some great songs, nice visual gags and typical Harry Hill humour. If he's not your thing, this film will be the worst movie ever made. Just avoid it. If, like me, you thought TV Burp was one of the best shows on television, you'll be fine with this...even if you wish it would just kick up a gear.

      Terrible and if it wasn't for taking my 6 yr old I would have left like the majority of the 6 viewers there. To be honest I'm not a fan of the Harry Hill style of humor to start with so I was not anticipating 90 minutes of belly aching but I can just deal with a few minutes, definitely not 90. The story line is terrible and the jokes daft, you're basically left wondering how he got this many stars to participate in what is clearly the worst movie ever made.

      I love Harry Hill on TV and really wanted to like this film, but it was terrible. The story line was ridiculous and the sketches just didn't work at all, in a room full of kids and teenagers, including my own, I didn't once hear anyone laugh. I just don't get how this ever got to the big screen, Julie Walters plays a great part as Harry's nan, but even she couldn't save the whole load of nonsense. I can't believe how so many big names agreed to take part in it, especially the brilliant Matt Lucas. Very disappointed Harry, please stick to what you are good at.

      Absolute garbage. Worse film I have ever had the misfortune to watch. Totally agree with the comments of the other reviewers who gave one star - if you could give 0 stars I would have. AWFUL.

      This movie was not funny and not very smart when you think about the story. The humor is so unfunny and really lame that i could make more funny jokes then this movie did, The story is weird and all over the damn place and that's why most of the film slows down by the stupid jokes and terrible story.
