Some promising comic ideas, but...
22 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A portmanteau film in thin disguise, the success of this comedy will depend largely on your enthusiasm for or against Ronald Shiner. After years of struggling to make himself heard in bit parts, Mr Shiner suddenly hit the top one or two years before this film was made. Believe it or not, he was voted by film exhibitors in the U.K. as the nation's number one box-office draw! I'm afraid this sudden success went to Mr Shiner's head. He became more and more aggressively hammy, less and less sympathetically funny. Here, he's at his worst. True, heavy-handed direction and banal dialogue doesn't help matters. I thought Margaret Rutherford sadly miscast. In fact, of the players only Fay Compton, A.E. Matthews and Raymond Huntley manage to shine. The rest are smothered by Mr Shiner and the script.
