Daily Mirror cartoon character Andy Capp is brought to the screen to continue his domestic battles with wife Flo and the bottle
Andy Capp is a workshy Northerner who prefers the bookmakers or the pub to clocking on at the factory. While never reluctant to use his fists he is not the master in his own house - his wife, Flo, is the dominant partner and she constantly keeps them from going under.
Our Review: A nice idea to bring the popular comic strip to life and the lead role was so perfectly cast it seemingly couldn't fail; but it did, and Andy scampered back to the comfort of the tabloids. The award-winning writer was unable to add enough flesh to the character and the extended format proved too much for viewers who preferred him in short, sharp shocks.
