It's a great film and you could write a thesis about why two working class lads from the North of England share the money - Eric wins it, Ernie takes it - but that's showbusiness.

Morecambe and Wise at their best...on the big screen that is
16 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although Morecambe and Wise produced their best work for TV I think there is a lot of fun to be had in this, their second big screen outing.

Yes, the script is a bit wooden in places and the plot verges from being both over explained and then over the top at any given time, the real magic is just seeing these two very talented comedians just work together and be very funny.

The fact that the majority of it is shot on location (and a beautiful one at that) helps a great deal and while there is no doubt who the stars are, it is nice to see that the supporting cast actually get more to do than just support.

That Riviera Touch is not a classic film, but it is entertaining and good fun for any fan of Morecambe and Wise.
