Wacky
19 October 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Peter meets old flame Carol at the train station where he's off for a pleasant weekend with wife, Barbara. Only he misses the train and while Barbara is whisked away, he's left stranded with Carol.

Somehow everything gets mixed up and they end up sharing a hotel room while Barbara has since gone home and told her parents, who immediately start off after the 'adulterous' pair.

The whole scene in the hotel would work marvelously as a stage play. It's fantastic to see poor Peter looking so befuddled and embarrassed as Carol waltzes around in a silk negligee. Many of the hilarious moments are supplied by Carol's dog, Kichi, albeit unintentionally. It's a wonder poor Kay Kendall was able to give such a fine performance with that little devil squirming in her arms every thirty seconds!
