comedy thriller which is not funny and has few thrills
11 January 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Firstly can I make the point that despite what is said in the earlier review this film is now available on DVD as part of the "Best of British" collection,which I would add is the only laughable thing about this film.Shot on a small budget at Walton on Thames studios.Guy Middleton is going into a clinic for his nerves.He accidentally picks up a briefcase from a taxi.It turns out to contain forged five pound notes and counterfeit plates.Middleton removes and replaces the notes but not the plates.The plates then seem to have a life of their own as they are chased constantly by the crooks.I would mention that the DVD also has the original trailer which is a lot better than the film.Incidentally one gaffe I spotted.A crook takes a motor launch out to a yacht.When he gets in the launch he is alone,when he gets off on to the yacht there is someone with him.Now that is funny.
