Oh My Lord
23 June 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Percy is a construction worker and amateur dramatist who dreams of having his (dreadful) play 'Oh My Lord' performed in the West End. An unscrupulous producer agrees to put the play on hoping it will fail and claim on the insurance. However the play is an unexpected hit with audiences falling about at the unintended humour. Percy is devastated and tries to sabotague the production despite him owing everyone 10 per cent of the takings (hence the title).

Does this sound familier? It should do as it is almost the same plot used (albeit to much better effect and much funnier) two years later in Mel Brookes classic 'The Producers'.

Charlie Drake, who plays Percy was a very popular slapstick comedian in Britain during the 50's and 60's. Like many other British comedians, (eg, Norman Wisdom, Morcambe and Wise), the films he made were never really any good at demonstrating his real comedic talent.

'Mr Ten Per Cent' was one of Charlie's later films and seems to forget at times that it's meant to be a comedy. We're supposed to feel sorry for little Percy as he's been hard done by but the only thought going through my mind was 'get on with it!'. By far the best part is near the end when Percy tries to ruin the production, but that in turn is almost ruined when Percy gives a sentimental speech to the audience.
