Format: DVD
Walter Goodfellow (Rowan Atkinson), the vicar of a small village in England is too preoccupied and befuddled with his job to pay any attention to his wife (Kristin Scott Thomas), so she has an affair with her golf teacher (Patrick Swayze) while his kids are lost and in trouble. Then a new housekeeper (Maggie Smith) enters their lives and all their problems seem to disappear.

I didn't know what to expect from this movie and was puzzled in the beginning but ended up liking it. It's a dark comedy that's exceedingly dry and subtle, more sinister than comedic, and very British in tone. The cast, led by the marvelous Maggie Smith, is superb and they hold your interest even when the story is at times odd and confusing. The location photography is gorgeous. This is definitely not a laugh-out-loud comedy, but is ultimately sweet and clever. 3.5 stars.

Just saw this at the movies. My daughter and I were still talking about it all the way home and revisiting the outrageously funny scenes. I noticed others walking home were talking about it too. To me that's the indicator of a well-enjoyed black comedy. Maggie Smith is, as usual, at her finest and reminded me of Gosford Park with her dry wit.

I won't spoil the suprise ending but will say this movies is a fabulous mass of contadictions which won't seem suprising until the end. It has the dicotomy of a Mary Poppins like figure (the hired housekeeper) who "fixes" the family, but who the audience knows is also a notorious "trunk murderess" who has just been released from an institute for the criminally insane. The family, of course, do not know making the audience co-conspiritors in the outrageously funny movie.

A special treat is the constant play on words (as a scholar and a writer myself I had a blast picking them all out and I'm happy to report I missed a couple until my daughter and I reviewed it coming home. The name of the little British village is Little Wallop (population 57) means nothing until you see the behaviour of the nanny/housekeeper. Even the title is a play on words encompasing the whole film.

The Brits have black comedy down to an art compared to Hollywood although I must admit Grose Point Blank is a fine American effort but this one has Bandits beat and i own both. I plan to own "Keeping Mum" soon. By the way, speaking of Americans, Patrick Swayze is in it as the lecherous lover and camps it up to perfection. All the other actors are British and famous in their own right. It took me a few minutes to realize the vicor was The Black Adder in disguise.

Enjoyed this film very much, its very warm and funny in a light way.

The picture looks great too, however the original film was filmed in 2.35:1 but the dvd release is cropped down to 1.77:1. The bonus footage is all in the original 2.35:1 and you can see how much of the film is lost due to cropping it down for 16x9 tv's. Its too bad a lot of UK movies are sold like this in N. America. The point of buying widescreen dvd's is to see them as they were shown in theatres without being physically edited down.

Who would think Rowan Atkinson would be primarily the straight man except for a few wee bits? Maggie Smith delightful as always. A great bit of dark English humour in keeping with the fine tradition. Enjoyed it immensely. Recommend it to anyone who "gets" British humour.

at first you think what the heck are they all doing, but you need to pay attention to the very first part of the dvd to understand where everything leads to... you will never think the same when someone says. i will make a cup of tea for us, shall i ... it's a great mystery movie if you can stick it out at the beginning until everything falls into place.. loved it!!! s

Now this is really odd, seeing Mr Bean as a British Vicar, alongside Patrick Swayze as the local golf stud. Maggie Smith is delightful in her role, and all in all, it really is a funny film with a true black humour ending.
