The Big Freeze, 1993

The Big Freeze is a 1993 short TV Movie written and directed by Eric Sykes.

In a similar vein to The Plank and other Sykes directorial vehicles, the film is a silent comedy featuring an all star cast.  It would be Spike Milligan’s last movie role.


Two accident-prone plumbers go to fix the plumbing at a home for retired gentle-folk on the coldest day of the year in Finland.

Everything that can go wrong for these plumbers does go wrong.
