Wonderful, funny and touching.

I really enjoyed the series and hated that it didn't get renewed for a second season. Most humor these days seems to lack any heart, but Hello Ladies is charming, embarrassing and beautiful all together. The characters are so interesting and it was a pleasure to watch this movie. I am so glad it got made. Kudos to Stephen Merchant and the cast... what a great job. Go watch the series and then catch the movie.

The Perfect Denouement To A Fantastic (and underappreciated) Comedy Series
Verified purchase
I love everything about this movie...except the fact that it ended. The dynamic between Stuart and Jessica was what I loved most about the series and it was so beautiful to see the two of them work things out in their own, quirky ways. Like many others, I wish there was more of this show (one season is not nearly enough to showcase Mr. Merchant's unique and pitch perfect comedy. But this movie wrapped it up so perfectly, anything more would ruin what has been created.

Last thing I'll say is that I LOVE Christine Woods. Pretty, perfect comedic timing, sexy, soulful. Wow. Casting her raised the show from great comedy to a show I will list among my favorites for years to come. Hopefully her career explodes and she'll get the great roles she deserves.

Anyway, "Hello Ladies" is a little gem of a series and this feature length swan song is my favorite of the bunch. Highly recommended. I think one should watch the episodes before watching this movie. It makes the characters' arcs and changes so much more satisfying.

Season 2 episodes stitched together into 1 hour and 30 minutes

The movie is so predictable that it leaves you terribly underwhelmed. Very few scenes brought more than a giggle to my face but not for a lack of humor. It's just that predictable. Nothing we haven't seen in the Season 1 TV series. Also, as I watched the movie, I couldn't help but think that this movie was a mish-mash of what was to be Season 2. Some of the scene sequences appear to be defined episodes in and of themselves. For example, the movie description led me to believe that the whole film would be about Stewart trying to impress his ex-girlfriend and her fiancee but that portion of the film was only part of the story, albeit a major part. If you think about that particular content of the film, it was clearly a designed episode, only now stitched into the greater plot in the film which is the relationship between Stewart and Jessica.

But even that relationship was poorly developed and grossly rushed. Next thing you know, it's "The End."

A lightghearted treasure

First, watch Hello Ladies season one (and the only season unfortunately). By doing this, you will gain perspective and understanding of the movie's intent and the characters involved. Steve Merchant is a brilliant writer and way above average actor. All the elements of comedy, emotion, empathy and love come together in a way that is not heavy handed or contrived. Just plain old fashioned honesty which is rare in this day and age. Highly recommended!

Lovely, reasonably funny most of the time and very funny a reasonable amount of time.

Charming and exactly what it sets out to be, no more but probably not less. When Merchant's personality is showing beneath the shtick, it's a warm-hearted funniness... which makes even lows very tolerable. Quite unlike Ricky Gervais, where things get unpleasant when they become too revealing.

Fun way to spend an afternoon
Verified purchase
When I first started watching this series, I thought it was going to be low-brow, stereotypical humor, and I was pleasantly surprised. The characters are all extremely relatable and their personalities and quirks are well fleshed-out. I love the dynamics between the cast members. The series and this movie are a great way to relax and watch something light but not insulting to my intelligence.

Not a great film.

I like him as a writer and comedy actor, but this film is disappointing.

Wish it was Another Season and Not a Movie
Verified purchase
Wraps everything up, but I feel like it could have been better spent on another season then a 1 hour movie. Still loved it
