'Pudsey The Dog: The Movie': BGT Dog Has His Day In Cheery Summer Holiday Family Comedy

David Walliams Jessica Hynes

Looking forward to the end of the school term? Scratching your head for a way to celebrate the start of the summer holidays with the whole family? A cinema trip to see Pudsey the Dog: The Movie may just be the solution to your dilemma: a fun and cheery summer comedy that's set to raise the woof (sorry) when it's released this weekend.

Pudsey The Dog Movie 1
'Britain's Got Talent' Star Pudsey Makes His Movie Debut In New Family Comedy, 'Oudsey The Dog: The Movie.'

You may remember the film's star, Pudsey the Dog, from talent contest Britain's Got Talent, which propelled the charming Border Collie, Bichon Frise and Chinese Crested powderpuff cross and his owner/trainer Ashleigh Jade Butler into the limelight and hearts of the British public.

Pudsey The Dog: The Movie Trailer

Pudsey is tired of living alongside his cooing middle-aged owner and decides to embark on a solo journey across town. Soon enough though, he meets teenagers Molly, George and Tommy - siblings who he spectacularly saves from some bullies - who take him in with the promise of a treat for his bravery. However, the children are bereft after the death of their father and their mother is moving them to an isolated country village. Pudsey decides to join them, despite the new landlord Mr. Thorne's objections, and he makes friends with some of the farmyard animals. He soon discovers that Mr. Thorne's hatred of dogs is not the only questionable thing about him and he starts to uncover a dastardly plan unfolding. Will this little dog manage to thwart Mr. Thorne and save the town?

Following the spectacular win of Pudsey the dog and his young trainer Ashleigh Butler on the sixth series of 'Britain's Got Talent', the dancing pooch embarks on a screen adventure with 'Pudsey The Dog: The Movie'. The charming comedy film has been directed by BAFTA nominee Nick Moore ('Wild Child', 'Horrid Henry: The Movie') and written by Paul Rose ('Dani's House', 'My Parents Are Aliens'), and will reach UK cinemas on July 18th 2014.

Jessica Hynes Swears Herself Into The Headlines With RTS Awards Speech

Jessica Hynes

Jessica Hynes – as one of the more talented and self-aware actors in Britain today – allowed herself a ‘free pass’ when she picked up the Royal Television Society award for Best Comedy Performance ahead of Ruth Jones and Fresh Meat star Jack Whitehall.

"How can anybody judge Ruth Jones, Jack Whitehall, Jessica Hynes, how do you f***ing judge that? I really don’t know. By height?" she said. "I am massively honoured to be awarded this really weighty award," Hynes continued. "For heaven’s sake, Ruth Jones, what an extraordinary comedian she is. What a f**king woman she is, to go from character, comedy, to drama to, y'know, rejuvenating the film industry in Cardiff."

Twenty Twelve Snubbed At The British Comedy Awards, But Jack Whitehall Wins The Crown

Jack Whitehall Vic Reeves Alan Carr Olivia Colman Jessica Hynes Rebecca Front Sarah Millican David Mitchell Graham Norton Jonathan Ross Lee Mack

The British Comedy Awards were held last night, presented once again by Jonathan Ross. It saw a room of the country's funniest people come under one roof to celebrate and ridicule one another, as is the British tradition. 

Twenty Twelve and The Thick of It have been compared since the former hit screens in 2011. It satirises the shambolic organization of this year's the Olympic games, while The Thick of It satirises the inner workings of the British government. However, despite audiences loving Twenty Twelve and it receiving four nominations in the three categories that it's eligible for, it failed to take home anything. Both Olivia Colman and Jessica Hynes from the show were nominated for Best Actress, but they lost out to The Thick of It's Rebecca Front. It seems an odd snub given that everyone has been celebrating all things Olympic since it was revealed that London got the deal.

Another surprise was Jack Whitehall's voted win of King of Comedy for 2012. He was up against some serious comedy heavy weights that have done the circuit for years: Alan Carr, Lee Mack, David Mitchell, Graham Norton and last year's Queen of Comedy, Sarah Millican. Initial speculation had assumed David Mitchell would get the prize, for his many panel show appearances, Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look. However, Whitehall has really broken through this year, with popular shows Bad Education and Fresh Meat, which are a lot better than they sound.

Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger! Review


After 2009's inane comedy Nativity, no one was clamouring for a sequel, but at least this one tips the scales into sublime silliness. If you can suspend your disbelief, this might even be a guilty pleasure, complete with stars behaving stupidly, adorable children and a series of hilariously corny pastiche Christmas songs.

Things continue to be rather chaotic at St Bernadette's Primary School in Coventry, mainly because the headmistress (Ferris) is still employing her idiotic nephew Mr Poppy (Wootton) as a classroom assistant. He's just scared off another applicant for the teaching job when the tenacious Mr Peterson (Tennant) arrives with his pregnant wife (Page), determined to stick it out. Somehow Poppy convinces Peterson to take the kids on an illicit cross-country journey to a Song for Christmas competition in Wales, at which the kids will face competition from school rival Mr Shakespeare (Watkins) as well as Peterson's estranged twin brother Roderick (also Tennant), a snooty composer with a professional choir.

The plot is utterly preposterous, and as the wacky events progress, writer-director Isitt never even tries to ground the movie in realism. In fact, there's a point about halfway through where it becomes pure fantasy, so complaints about believability don't really apply. The only way to survive watching it is to sit back and enjoy the inane plot and goofy slapstick. And by doing so, we're surprised that the film is actually rather enjoyably ridiculous.

Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger Trailer

Mr. Poppy, an immature classroom assistant at a St. Bernadette's Primary School, returns with ideas for a new Christmas performance with his class following the success of their Nativity play in 2009's 'Nativity!' He wishes to organise the pupils for the National 'Song for Christmas' Competition where the prize is a massive o10,000. However, being only an assistant, he cannot enter the class until their new teacher arrives. Donald Peterson is that teacher; a restless and stressed out man who struggles to deal with the pregnancy of his wife, the pressure on him to become like his talented composer twin brother and, of course, the unruly Class 7. Mr. Poppy wastes no time in getting Donald to agree to get the competition performance underway but the new teacher soon finds himself out of his depth and struggling to control the behaviour of his teaching assistant who insists on using a real baby and a donkey in the show. However, when Donald discovers that his perfect, daddy's boy brother is also competing alongside the upperclass choir of St Cuthbert's College, he finds himself determined to put on a world-class performance.

'Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger' is the most perfect sequel to its 2009 predecessor. It sees the return of Debbie Isitt as writer and director and most of your favourite characters and is set to be released well in time for the festive season on November 23rd 2012. 

Director: Debbie Isitt

Burke & Hare Review

You can see what Landis was trying to do here: recapture the funny-scary tone of one of his biggest hits, 1981's An American Werewolf in London. But the mix of comedy and grisliness in this comical take on a true story is off the mark.

In 1828 Edinburgh, friends William Burke (Pegg) and William Hare (Serkis) realise they can make good money supplying cadavers to world-class surgeon Dr Knox (Wilkinson). But when they can't find a dead body, they kill someone instead. Hare's wife (Hynes) finds out and wants in on it, but Burke can't tell his aspiring actress girlfriend (Fisher) how he makes his living. Meanwhile, Knox is battling a rival surgeon (Curry) for the King's seal. And the local militia captain (Corbett) is closing in.
