Noisy but not naughty farce!
10 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This extremely noisy and thoroughly predictable farce's limited quota of genuine humor is further undermined by director Paddy Carstairs. Not only does Carstairs handle the action in his usual ill-timed, ham-fisted manner, but he has seen fit to indulge his egotistical star with numerous close-ups. The film often resembles a television "comedy", an impression re-enforced by the script's seemingly endless parade of tediously-paced, elemental slapstick.

Fortunately, the obvious enthusiasm of the players (including Mr Shiner) does manage to overcome some of the inertia produced by both script and direction, although disappointingly, the lovely French star, Jacqueline Pierreux, has only a very small part.

Production values rate as modest and behind-the-camera credits rise no higher than steadfastly routine.
