Mrs Henderson - anyone else sadly disappointed?

Don't get me wrong - I DO like some films Smile and my expectations are really low, given the drivel that's out there, but... I was stuck on an airplane and Mrs. H was on offer and I like her, so... I mean, how many BAD films has Dame Judy been in, esp lately?

Well, what a disappointment it was... and not because of her, or any of the actors. It was the whole screenplay/storyline - there really wasn't one. It felt unfinished. Mavis from Corrie was in it (shocked me there), but to what point? It was a superfluous appearance...

The relationship between Mrs H and Hoskins is treated similarly. There's tension, alright, turning into sexual tension on her side, but when she discovers he's married, it seems to fizzle to a plop. Strange.

And I don't what happened IRL, but her reason for opening the theatre was stupid and unbelievable in the extreme - because her son probably died a virgin and she wanted to give all good young fellows going off to war a thrill?

If you don't agree with me, I would welcome some intelligent rationale for why you liked it...

This was one of the biggest time-wasters ever... I would NOT see it again, and if I were Dame J, I would NOT add it to my resume.

I agree with you - the story was sketchy and pointless overall. Dame Judy was turned down on 3 talk shows while she tries to help sell it and ageism was stated to be the reason.... maybe the screenplay didn't help?

You're kidding - I didn't know that. That's sad - I like her. What do you mean that ageism was the reason? Did they think the topic was dated or that the actors were old or what?

Actually, those excepts support my contention that the show was crap and they didn't want her on for a crap show...
