Storyline
Under the mistaken impression that his pet hamster, Abu, is ill Harry Hill and his Nan (Julie Walters) take him to the vet, who wrongly gives them the tragic news that Abu has one week to live. Harry, who thinks he speaks fluent hamster (but, in fact, misunderstands every squeak that comes out of his little pal’s mouth), incorrectly thinks Abu’s dying wish is a trip to Blackpool. With Nan making three, the trio embark on a road trip to the seaside town. Unbeknownst to them, the Vet is actually the dirty rotten henchman of Harry’s evil twin brother Otto (Matt Lucas), who was raised separately by Alsatians. Addicted to Hula-Hoops and fueled by revenge, Otto’s nefarious plot is to kidnap Abu and make him the centerpiece of the plastinated hamster world he’s creating in his evil lair. Can Harry and Nan stop Otto before it’s too late? Written by Production

  1. I saw this film today, and i have read some of the harsh reviews which this film has been given, and i thought differently. I am a massive Harry Hill fan, and i was excited to see this film, and I wasn't let down! A great cast including Matt Lucas, Julie Walters and Simon Bird, who provide lots of laughs! Matt Lucas is amazing, as always, as playing Harry's evil twin brother and it was great to see him partner up with Harry in this film. A crazy storyline, which is exactly what you'd expect from a genius like Harry. This film is really underrated and should get much more publicity than it has now.The poor previous reviews are from people who don't understand Harry Hill's sense of humour, a must-see if you are a fan of Harry Hill!

  2. I went to see this film with my family of Harry Hill lovers, and I loved it! Harry Hill, Julie Walters, Matt Lucas, Simon Bird and Johnny Vegas were all fantastic. Saying this as a lifelong Harry Hill fan, I would recommend it if you've ever watched him. If you don't know or like his sense of humor then you will probably not like it. On IMDb, The Harry Hill Movie has too many bad reviews. This is because they do not like him. It should definitely be more popular!

    There were loads of funny scenes, including a fight on top of Blackpool tower. The worst part was the end credits! He has a strange background in the film, because he has a twin brother brought up by Alsatians because his Nan couldn't look after them both because their parents went on holiday but ended up staying there.

    Brilliant idea for a family afternoon if you need some comedy to liven up your day!

  3. I'm sorry to differ, but I went to see this last week with my daughter and I loved it. If you like Harry Hill, then you will like this. I don't quite understand what's not to like. Maybe because people expect constant swearing these days…….and there is none. It is a true English comedy film, like Norman Wisdom or the Ealing films of the 50's and 60's. A nice little story with a great cast. I laughed out loud on my own a few times, and really enjoyed it. I hope he makes more. Great family entertainment. It's also fun trying to put a name to the famous faces that pop up during the film. There is an outstanding appearance by Jim Broadbent that had me in stitches.Well done Harry !

  4. My 10 year old twins were very excited to see this, I was a little dubious as I had feared that some of the jokes would be over there heads and that I would find it not funny and childish.

    I was very surprised to find myself laughing out loud along with the kids and enjoyed it immensely, especially the chicken scene which was very well played out.

    The Johnny Vegas hamster role was however the star of the show,and was a good mix of puppets/CGI/man in a suit to make it believable.

    My only note of criticism was that I would have loved to have seen the Badger parade make an appearance though!

    Don't go in expecting high brow comedy, go in with no expectations and you will have fun.
