Humour relies on Italian caricatures
12 January 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

For some reason Eric Sykes did not have a hand in the screenplay.If he had then surely it would have been funny in parts.He didn't and it is not remotely funny at all.This despite John me Mesurier as a priest with a truly dreadful Italian accent.Every aspect of this film is a caricature of Italian manners but with as many clichés as you could conceive of.They even bring in the mafia to try and impart some humour into an otherwise tame and limp finale.Lots of familiar English character actors such as Warren Mitchell,Martin Benson,Graham Stark and Mario Fabrizi appear but unfortunately they cannot help.What was Eric Sykes trying to do singing under the end credits?
