Oh boy!
9 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Not one of the best British films of the period. The lead actors were all to become British household names in the 1970s and 1980s but there is very little to show what they would become here. All in all, very little to cause offence but then not much to entertain either. This film has a feeling of being made very much earlier than in actuality and as a result feels staid and out of date.
