Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Predictable, unfunny, and offensive, this spin-off from the British sketch show The Catherine Tate Show is a soul-sucking experience. The Nan Movie takes the show's deliberately rude character Nan -- played by Tate, who also co-wrote the script with Brett Goldstein -- and gives her 95 minutes to poke fun at everything from the LGBTQ+ community to mental health issues.

At the center of the story is a rift between Nan and her sister, Nell -- played by Parkinson -- caused by the latter marrying a man Nan was in love with. The doomed romance is played out in a serious of long flashback sequences that aim for sincerity but fall as flat as the attempted humor throughout the rest of the movie. The Nan Movie's references are tired and out of date, and being stuck in a car on this road trip with the pair rapping, singing, and shouting is torturous. For die-hard Nan fans only.
