15 February 2003 | by (Irlam, England) – See all my reviews

One of the many second features churned out by Butchers. It has a brainless plot by A.R. Rawlinson about a mother (Avice Landone) and her two criminal sons (Peter Reynolds & David Gregory) who use a newsagents as a front for their nefarious deeds. The gang plan to crack open a safe, unfortunately Gregory, who is the expert in this field, is behind bars. Thus Landone makes plans to break him out. Carol White turns up as the pregnant girlfriend of David Kernan, who has reluctantly became involved in the shenanigans. At this early point in her career White shows none of the promise that was later to win her acclaim in Cathy Comes Home and Poor Cow. In fact after this hysterical performance it is a wonder she was ever employed again. At one stage of the film the actress playing her mother says "Oh Carol, stop acting", to which White's character replies "I'm not acting!". Such insight in an actor is rare.
