Lack of storyline and an unfunny comedy.
11 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having just watched this film I'm left wondering what was the point of it? It was about a bunch of university students and a university porter, the students didn't get on with one of the senate and the porter was really a well regarded writer. The storyline was confused without any clear sense of direction.

All the cast seemed to put in a reasonable amount of effort, but the script didn't allow us to like any of the characters. Charles Hawtrey, of Carry On fame, always struggled for laughs when he was playing 'a boy' and he shambles through half of this film pretending to be drunk.

I guess this film was made when most of the population had never been to university. Perhaps then film makers could get away with students having an average age of 30+, but today it looks plain silly.

Really this film had no redeeming features, other than I think it was filmed in Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow. There are many better ways to spend 80 minutes.
