Groundbreaking comedy with satirical overtone.
6 December 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I'm biased! I worked on this film and therefore know all the ins and outs. It was made for very little money and qualified for 'Double Eady' and that helped make it one of the most successful pics of all times, (returns as % of production cost).

It premiered at London's Odeon (Leicester Sq) as second feature to 'A Shot in the Dark'. It is the only time I have seen a cinema audience give a standing ovation to any picture - let alone a 4 reeler.

For about two years afterwards it was featured on cinema billboards as support film, a testament to its popularity.

This film started out as a sponsored comedy short for the Construction company Tersons but such was Jay Lewis's and Johnny Whytes's expertise that it soon became clear from the rushes that a masterpiece was in the making and it was finished with the cinema in mind.

The pic is still seen from time to time on UK TV and it is well worth setting the VCR.

Of course the joke is that 40 years on, the same comedy is still to be seen on our building sites and men digging up the same hole in the roads.
