Storyline

A recently-qualified barrister is annoyed when he finds his firm is taking on the boss's niece. The two youngsters soon find themselves in court on opposite sides in a case on the restitution of conjugal rights where both plaintiff and defendant seem to have things to hide. The irascible and rather fearsome judge has little time for the goings-on, least of all the way the two young lawyers seem rather too keen to squabble with each other. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Only for a rainy afternoon ...
12 April 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This below par comedy rarely surfaces above average.

Poor casting of the lead players along with diffident direction produces a movie that is best described as a letdown.

Without the talents of the irrepressible James Robertson Justice propping up the whole shebang it would be something to miss - however his presence does stand out and makes it worthwhile to have a look on a rainy afternoon.

Most of the support cast, notably Joan Sims, manage well enough with the tripe being fed to them. Personally, I expect more from an English comedy than has been presented here.
