Not bad British B-movie
24 May 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film has Kenneth Connor typically landing on his feet after creating mayhem as a National Serviceman who thinks he knows how to fix anything. There was also one where Connor plays much the same character in the Royal Navy called Watch Your Stern. In Nearly a Nasty Accident Connor is joined by stalwarts of the British cinema such as Jimmy Edwards, Richard Wattis, Cyril Chamberlain and, of course, Shirley Eaton. I particularly liked the bits where he tries to mend the telephone and where he opens the gate to the overgrown path. Needless to say, despite being a total idiot and messing everything up he still ends up with the girl since British audiences at the time wanted feel-good films. After the war loads of British movies, particularly light comedies like this, run along these lines. It's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, not taxing on the brain and has some good laughs.
