STRAINED, BUT OCCASIONALLY AMUSING
2 May 2003 | by gypolancSee all my reviews

Love Thy Neighbour is a strained expansion of a popular 1970s TV Sitcom. It's dealing with race relations between West Indians and White British makes it popular with the humour found in Working Men's Clubs, but the cracks do show.

At times the humour is funny, but very rarely. It's forgettable.
