Audience Reviews for The Plank

The Classic British comedy, with such a simplistic idea and a small budget film, yet one that?s widely known and greatly put together. Yes it does seem a little corny now, but only because so many people have copied this as a sketch over the years, it seems almost unoriginal when in fact this was the original. A fun re-look at one of the older British comedies.
