Three stars at Best.
Despite the plethora of talent on the screen i.e. Timothy Spall (Harry Potter) as the dim witted Lord Clarence Emsworth who is constantly Cajoled by his sister Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) Connie to get the Blandings estate into order and get her brother married off.
and however that thing that is supposed to be his son Jack Farthing (Pramface) Freddie has survived to beyond puberty is anyone’s guess, he is as annoying as he is inept.
Even throwing in many guest appearances from the likes of Paloma Faith (St Trinians) as a dancer called Georgia, one of Freddie’s love interests; David Walliams (Little Britain).
It seems as though you can take all the best ingredients in the country and come out with dog food.
Or it may be because I cannot stand the Bourgeoisie.
I believe this will have a limited viewing audience but if you like a retro jaunt this may be your cup of Earl Grey Tea.
The three stars are for the ingredients not the final dish.
