Knockabout farce
20 May 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

The humor is mainly in the dialog, which is a constant stream of puns, ambiguity and double entendres, supported by chaotic action with many semi-slapstick sight gags. The characters are all amusing stereotypes and the plot is definitely secondary to all of the above. The whole thing is totally lighthearted fun of a rather dated kind which would appeal to those who appreciate the old silent comedies; I'd only recommend this if you are in that kind of mood.
