Absolutely brilliant! Really clever compositions using the songs of Madness. Made me cry laughing at some of the witty one-liners and want to jump out of my chair and join in with the dancing!!
An ingenious plot with many twists and turns, you'll be stunned to see what happens. With a skilled and talented cast, there's nothing not to like about this DVD! :)

Picture yourself in a West End theatre waiting for the curtain to go up on the musical dubbed 'The Madness Musical'. Imagine your excitement as the medley of Madness songs begins. Now imagine how that experience translates to DVD. Does a musical lend itself to a home viewing experience? Well, yes it does.
Our House - A Musical Love Story won the 2003 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, and featured Madness frontman Suggs in a supporting role for a limited time. Although no members of Madness appear in this DVD, it's got everything a Madness or musical fan would want: love, lies, truth, betrayal, denial, humour and possibly the most fantastic pop songs ever written. It includes the songs House Of Fun, Our House, Baggy Trousers, Embarrassment, Driving In My Car, My Girl, It Must Be Love and Night Boat To Cairo, plus a brilliant set and cast to do them justice.
Our House cleverly adopts what I like to call the Madness sensibility. It's full of cheeky chappies, humour, grit and realism. Madness's songs were often narratives of ordinary life and Our House is a musical about ordinary people. It's an ordinary love story about an ordinary boy and an ordinary girl.
The musical sits well on the small screen, with its lively dancing and singing performances and dramatic tension, and draws you into the lives of Joe Casey and his girlfriend as their teenage affair is almost cut short when Joe commits a crime to impress her. All is not lost because of the imaginative plot that entwines two different outcomes for the situation. Which path does Joe eventually take? Does the romance survive?
In a nutshell, this is a great romantic comedy with the best soundtrack you're ever likely to hear. Charming, witty and real; you'll be as fond of this as you probably are of the band whose songs inspired it.
