Sequel to "Curtain Call" is very different in style
3 June 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This sequel to "Curtain Call" is a much broader comedy with Mowbray and MacBride camping it up something shocking in a silly story about impoverished theatrical producers trying to raise money for a new Broadway play from a Miss Havisham-like recluse (Risdon). The pair aren't great comic actors and it's easy to see why the partnership didn't survive this film. But Mowbray gets to perform a very long variation on the old gag in which a hammy stage actor refuses to lie down when shot. It may once have raised a laugh or two. Otherwise the direction is terribly slow for this kind of lowbrow farce. The supporting cast are nobodies.
