As bad a comedy as they get
23 September 2001 | by (italy) – See all my reviews

Very tame British comedy, with a host of actors who should have had a better director.

Notable mainly for the outdoor location shots of Brighton in Sussex, England, and therefore as an historical document showing the seafront, the shops, the pier and Brighton North Station making, I believe its movie debut.

I have a poor quality copy of the film lifted off British TV if anyone really wants one, it is in VHS PAL though.
