If you're going to make a film of Porridge, this is it. The nature of film
demands a "big" storyline, and what could be bigger than the plot of
Some people have said that the film doesn't quite have the same zest as
series. That is true - but then it goes to show how amazing the series
because this is one heck of a good film.
It has also been said that the plot (which I won't give away for people
haven't seen it) is weak. Here I disagree. The only minus point I have
the plot is the fact that the subplot about new arrival Rudge disappears
about 2/3 of the way in. As for the main plot, see above. It's the only

When you consider the number of TV sitcoms that were adapted for the big
