The Comic Strip team hit the big screen, with their series on Channel 4 being a huge success, this was one of the best Comic Strip films of the lot, with Peter Richardson giving it a good scope with it's small budget, this had a simulataneous release in cinemas and on Channel 4's Film on Four slot. This has Ade Edmondson as Dennis Carter, a complete moron who boasts to his girlfriend Andrea (Dawn French) about a drugs smuggling ring in a lovely seaside town in the West Country where he's just been. Then gets in trouble with the police who overheard him boasting about it, and along with Sgt. Harvey Duncan (Richardson) and WPC Lesley Reynolds (Jennifer Saunders) finds himself back at the seaside, trying to prove there are drugs being smuggled, which by coincidence, there is!! Dennis keeps digging himself deeper and deeper into One of the best British films of the 1980's, with a brilliant supporting cast including Nigel Planer, Ronald Allen, Alexei Sayle and Keith Allen, (Rik Mayall is sadly missed). And for reference, this is the film where Robbie Coltrane walks along the jetty, getting splashed by waves to the tune of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Two Tribes. Maybe one of the best scenes of 1980's cinema.
