Very funny British comedy - deserves to be seen.
29 October 2000 | by (midwest US) – See all my reviews

I still think this is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen after 40 years of viewing experience. Any fan of the "Carry On" series will be delighted. I think it is equal to "The Ladykillers" (Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom) which also is a "10".
