Goofy fun.
16 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have no idea why the Brooklyn-born actor, Edward Everett Horton, is in this British movie. But, he did have a rather patrician accent and the film is enjoyable.

When the film begins, Dudley (Horton) and his friends are enjoying a drunken bachelor party. He and his best man get back late and, not surprisingly, sleep so late that Dudley misses his wedding! Instead of just telling everyone what happened, he begins by telling a lie...and the lies keep building and building. Add to that a guy who shows up and claims to be his long-lost love child and you have the recipe for a very goofy film--especially when two of them end up in drag!

This is a very silly film and one that is worth seeing.
