The Goons Greatest Film Escapade!
27 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Shamefully hidden behind the acknowledgement "Down Among The Z Men" has as being the only major Goon film, Case of the Mukkinese Battlehorn, being only a third in length, is a vast superior. Devised by Peter Sellers and starring himself, Spike Milligan and Dick Emery (filling out Harry Secombes shoes) the story twists and turns about quite incomprehensibility, but the comedy is completely at the floor ALL THE TIME. You've heard of people saying the films a-laugh-a-minute? Well, Case of the Mukkinese Battlehorn is the only time I've known it be true. Any fan of comedy, not just Goons, would see this and appreciate it.
