Mrs Brown’s Boys: D’Movie
, the big-screen adaptation of Brendan O'Carroll's hugely popular BBC sitcom that will leave even the most fervent of fans disappointed by its abattoir of wit.
For while the TV show possesses a warm, ramshackle appeal, this story of granny Agnes Brown (O'Carroll) trying to save a Dublin market from d'foreigners (boo!) is not only out of its comfort zone, but full of cold, mean-spirited gags about the blind, an Indian man everyone thinks is Jamaican (um, LOL?) and O'Carroll's Mr Wang: an eyes-narrowed, 'I so ronery' Chinese caricature so dazzlingly racist it beggars belief.
