threadbare farce
3 November 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was clearly made with cinemas in the north of England in mind.You can tell that by the regional accents and supposed location of this film.The film has a threadbare appearance in every sense.It looks as if it were filmed in a broom cupboard by a third rate theatrical trope.Even Diana Dors is dragged down.Notice how when she is in her home she talks with a broad Lancashire accent but when she is outside say the dance hall she talks without an accent.The basic problem though is that this film is completely unfunny.What is most surprising is that the BFI should consider this film worthy of a DVD release.I cant see anything of interest in this tepid load of tripe.
