Flaming Good!
25 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

One of the best British Comedy films of all time. 3 Crooks steal a fire engine as a getaway vehicle for their crimes. David King, Norman Rossington and Daniel Massey are on excellent form as the crooks, Massey steals the show as the spiv who dates Maggie Smith. Robert Morley gives his greatest performance as a crook scientist. Check this film out, you will not be disappointed!
