Gawd, I wished I had read Nonya Bizness' review before I rented this. Review hits the accuracy target right on. Yes, it's full of the pomp and fashion and era you come to expect in a period piece, but now you've got to have a good ability of disconnect from the reality in order to enjoy this video. Note how the character Barrow played by Robert James-Collier first waits on the polishing of the silver to confer with the lead staff of the visiting royals to ask which pieces they'll focus on, and after creating that situation, when he's upstaged by the returning Mr. Carson played by Jim Carter, Barrow barks back at his employer, Lord of the manse. They couldn't figure out something better to use for their plot device? I gave 3 stars on the basis of it's established reputation, not on the recommendation I make for this movie.

My wife and I were underwhelmed. We are fans of the show but the movie tried to cram in to many different story lines and the writing seemed less quality than we expected. Overall glad we saw it but would have preferred it to be and hour and half with better writing and less random story lines.

I'm not going to go hawg wild here. But I wasn't particularly happy. And I didn't have any hopes. I had just binged the 6 seasons 3 weeks prior. I ordered this movie at 1am on payday. It was like camping out for hank Williams Jr concert tickets. I was ready. Disappointed that not more of a spotlight was on the help. And Daisey,the father in law,the new boyfriend etc..... I'm going to watch it again. But I also have to watch the show again. I WANT TO SEE A SPIN OFF. WITH DAISEY&THE FARM.
