Amusing B feature
17 September 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I have seen the story done before but either as drama or rom com.In this film it is played strictly for laughs.With an old pro at the head of the cast,Edward Rigby,it is in safe hands.In most of these type of films the highlight is on the "fish out of water2 theme.Here it is not just on that but bringing down a peg or two the down to earth Earls haughty relatives.Particularly funny is when the love potion ends up in the glasses of the two unlikeliest suitors you could imagine.Unlike the other films all ends well as the Earl and the butler accompany Lapis back to her tropical island.A lot funnier than you would ever imagine.Good ensemble playing and a witty script help matters considerably.
