More Houses, Blouses, and Keys to the Kingdom of Over Entitled Pointlessness

What can I say about this series. IT revolves around the most simple of young lads that has a veritable ticket to easy street, which apparently is in fact in London, England. And yet you still cannot believe how he just treats it like he must have treated daycare when he was an excuse to wander off and ask strangers to come over.BUt the first film was eventually likeable. I have no idea why, because it was nuttier that a movie about peanuts co directed by the Cohen Brothers and Tarantino. This sequel too, was a bit off. In fact, it had so much less to do with the original characters, the only connecting theme was the over easy intrusion allowed by the useless and dimwitted young guy whom is supposed to the the door man. It was just weird. And it all dealt with a useless and pitiful woman that had no self worth or made any conscious effort to be her own person and not let idle chit chat and gossip affect her. This wasa solid point lower in score than the first movie. SEE Joes Palace FIRST...then maybe...MAYBE, this weird drivel portrayed by the great Maggie Smith. Have drinks while watching both or either. PLEASE!

Couldn't finish

Painful to watch. Tried to finish it but couldn't care less about the plot, characters or whatever this movie was trying to do. Shame cause they had a good cast but it didn't help.

What a waste of an evening.

Greville never existed

Hard not to argue with all the 1 and 2 star ratings. This is not a Hollywood-type movie. My take is a little different from those who believe the film is about power over others or miss spent youth. In trying to understand why this movie was made, and why it could be said that there is not plot - I suggest the following.

Greville never existed.

Greville was the representation of those times. He understood the horrors of the class system and power, but insisted that elitism is the better choice over the unwashed masses. That much is clear, that is, his attitude. Why did Greville need Mary's help? Because Greville was dying, that is, his power waning, his generation losing influence. That is, he is clearly depicted as a representing his times in his unchanging attitude and even his 'symbolic' refusal to dress to the times. He knew many secret things, but no one really knew who or what he did, again symbolic, not really a man, but an incarnation of the theme - the passing of a generation.

But how could have Mary helped this 'symbol'? She was a writer, and could have written/influenced the course of social change. She lost her job, as it was stated, because her 'voice of youth' had already become passe. Mary, again as stated, was born between what was coming and what was going socially. Somewhere along the way she lost her voice, her inspiration. Greville, wanted her to be his partner, he could help her professionally, meaning that by writing favorably of the past, of those mores, beliefs, and class system, those still in power (albeit waning) could support her.

Greville, the symbol, didn't directly have Mary fired. It was a plot device. Mary, as was stated, simply lost favor as the times moved on. Mary was torn between the past and her uncertain future. She dressed the part, again as stated, but she really didn't belong to the changes coming.

I believe, if you see Greville as a plot device, a symbol of Mary being lost between generations, then we see the sad story of a women who was lost. She was at her best when she was young, criticizing the mores of class and status. But then that grew tiresome, and meaningless, being on the leading edge, that type of criticism was soon to be common place.

The Greville, inside of her, wanted her to support what was refined in society, even if the gild often covered over ugliness just beneath the surface. Greville haunted her, when she wrote, she always ended up in the wine cellar, a symbol of the elite.

Why couldn't she surrender to Greville, that is, the voice in her representing, belonging to the past? That is a hard question to answer, and I would think could only be answered subjectively. I can venture to say that she recognized the ugliness of the past, but also could not accept how social change was pushing society towards also becoming ugly, common. Consequently, she was lost between two worlds. One the one hand a world her youth rejected, and the other which she become common herself, and wrote about antiques.
