Surprised there is not already a thread about this, but, yes, one of the few feature film spin-offs that truly works. Despite its episodic structure it stands up as a realised whole.

Yeah it was a very good film. They were not gonna make anymore after the film because they had an argument at the time the film were released.

The ending of the film neatly brought the series full circle so it was good place to end.

I liked the Christmas special of the show because it had a lot of very good jokes and I loved the fancy dress party bit.

Yeah not a bad film. I'm not a big fan of the TV series but the film is quite decent. Watchable!

It was given away with the Sun some years ago. So, if you're lucky you might pick it up in a charity shop for "a donation".

Life is a chocolate box and I've already had the first layer and someone's eaten all the soft centres.
