Storyline

Whilst his parents Linda and Mike spend every weekend ballroom dancing 11 year old Ben goes to stay with his granny, whom he initially finds boring. Then one day he finds a huge collection of jewels in a biscuit tin and discovers she was once a notorious burglar, the Black Cat, though she was never caught as she never tried to sell her spoils. Ben decides they should pull off the biggest heist of all, stealing the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London, using his intimate knowledge of plumbing to enter. Despite his parents' disastrous attempt to get him on the dance floor and the intrusive Neighbourhood Watch warden Parker the couple effect their daring plan. They do not succeed but are allowed to escape by a Royal personage, whom they happen to meet. Sadly Granny does not make it to Christmas but her legacy lives on - in the millions raised for charity by her jewels and the profound effect she has had on the Royal personage.

Worst experience of my life
5 June 2019 | by robertswill-46990See all my reviews

I have just created an account on IMDB merely to write this review. I was recently unfortunate enough to be encumbered on the sofa while this played out on Netflix and have to say I now feel less intelligent and less able to see the world in a positive light as a result. The gags throughout the show were bottom of the barrel and the plotline was riddled with holes the size of the ones I would like to put in my own head after watching it. David Walliams should live with the guilt of what he's done for the rest of life and be tried, alongside Tony Blair, as a war criminal. There were, however, two plus points to the ordeal I was forced to endure. One was the half decent joke about the kid being an avid plumber, plumbing wallpaper and all. A rare glimmer of light in a world of darkness. And the second was that after watching this I was inspired to fulfil my own dreams as a writer, because if David Walliams can make it to Netflix with this utter puddle of slime, then surely there is hope for someone like me. If you are reading this before watching it, save yourself, and don't. If you are reading this afterwards, I offer my sincerest condolences.
