Duff comedy
2 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I used to like Jimmy Edwards.I saw him on stage with Eric Sykes in Big Bad Mouse.I enjoyed his sort of bombastic comedy.However even he is defeated by this unfunny comedy about this impecunious Irish aristocratic family left nothing but debts in the fathers will.However it is believed their is treasure hidden somewhere in the house.So they have to take in paying guests which not everyone is happy with.Eminently forgettable.
