Tough-talking, loud-mouth mother and grandmother Agnes Brown enjoys her job selling fruit and vegetables on a town market stall; not only that, but it's her only real source of income. But when a vicious land developer selects her stall as the next on his hit list to be removed and replaced, she faces serious livelihood problems ahead. In a bid to keep it up and running, she takes the developer to court in a campaign backed by an extraordinary amount of locals (and die hard fans). With her six children behind her in her plans to thwart these rather criminal businessmen, she enlists the help of an alcohol dependent lawyer and a barrister with an unfortunate case of Tourettes syndrome. Will this mouthy matriarch maintain her Moore Street business? Or has the legendary Mrs Brown finally met her match?

Pete Postlethwaite stars as Guinness-swilling Everyman Hubert, who, for no apparent reason, suddenly turns into a large white rat (he was a white man, they say, so it would be ridiculous for him to turn into a black rat!). That's not the point of the film, though -- the point is that no one seems to care very much about Hubert's predicament, staging a series of mundane problems around Hubert's dilemma. The local reporter wants to write a book about Hubert. Hubert gets tossed into a washing machine. Hubert bites his wife's finger. By the time Hubert suddenly turns back into a man again, we've utterly forgotten why we should care about him in the first place.
