Fair but rather tiresome
17 October 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I generally love Will Hay but this has to be the most trying of his movies - though it has its moments, it's a bit overlong in general and plays on too few jokes. Will is Benjamin Twist (again!) and is a ship porter who ends up a passenger when the passenger he is tending, a runaway crook, drugs him and swaps places with Twist. Twist doesn't awake until he's far at sea, past the point of no return. He joins up with another stowaway and both end up getting off the ship with a herd of cows (their fake cow suit is actually pretty impressive) before they are caught.

In the US, Twist ends up tutor to a disgusting little twerp of a child, while his friend ends up in the ring that kidnaps said child - only neither knows the other's profession.

In the end, you can't help feeling that the parents would have been better off letting the criminals keep the child ;)
