Award winning comic makes his big screen debut

LONDON –16th October 2013 – The Harry Hill Movie starring BAFTA-winning Harry Hill (“TV Burp”), Julie Walters (Billy Elliot), Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners Movie), Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids), Sheridan Smith (Gavin and Stacey), Marc Wootton (Nativity), Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) and Jim Broadbent (Bridget Jones’s Diary) will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 20th December by Entertainment Film Distributors.

What would you do if you thought your hamster only had a week to live, your chickens are attacking you with machine guns, and your Nan is just not giving you the space to spread your wings?

When Harry and his Nan (Julie Walters) discover their hamster is seriously ill they set off on a road trip to Blackpool pursued by a lunatic vet (Simon Bird). Along the way, Harry falls in love with an undersea shell person (Sheridan Smith), witnesses canine superstars The Dachsund Five, and meets indie rock band The Magic Numbers - who run a B’n’B. It all culminates in a fight on top of The Blackpool Tower. Who could be behind it all? Could it be Harry’s evil twin Otto (Matt Lucas), who was separated from Harry at birth and brought up by Alsatians?

Based on a true story, it’s all singing, all dancing family entertainment from the big collared loon himself.

Harry comments “I can't wait for everyone to see my movie in December. It's full of all the traditional festive family fun – evil twins, brains with legs, giant hamsters & chickens with guns

The Harry Hill Movie is directed by Steve Bendelack (Mr Bean’s Holiday), from a script by Harry Hill, Jon Foster and James Lamont (BAFTA-winning writers of The Amazing World of Gumball). Director of photography is Baz Irvine (Mr Bean’s Holiday). The film is produced by Robert Jones (Dirty Pretty Things, Run, Fatboy, Run) and Lucky Features.
