Percy is a close relative to Harold in this tired play adaptation full of clichés
7 December 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Difficult to believe that in the era of the British new wave that they were making films as clichéd and patronising as this,not to say generally unfunny.It is clear that Percy is a close relative to Harold with the sole exception of the fact that he is hen pecked by his mother rather than scolded by his father.The characters are all clichés,P_ercy the virgin meeting up with the tart with a heart of gold.The only dark lining being the hint at incest.There has been an attempt to open out the play,the trouble is that sooner or later we come back to the bedroom and have to put up with the antics of Percy.No wonder the British cinema was in such decline if this is the sort of film that they were making.
