Those eyes make it worthwhile
7 December 1998 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Let's be honest, what's the funniest thing about a Marty Feldman film? Those eyes! And in this particular film, they are used to great comedic effect. But that being said, if your only interest is Marty Feldman's eyes and the absolutely fantastic wardrobe designed by the very trendy Mr Fish, then this film could be a bit of a bore. Marty Feldman plays an advertising executive who believes one thing: Sex Sells! His main account is a brand of Scottish Porridge and his main thought is how to make it sexy. Marty in this film constantly drifts into dream sequences which touch on every aspect of film and commercial making and sex. This does not help when his very liberal wife is responsible for the 'sex on TV' committee which includes the likes of a very prudent couple, a priest and a colonel. Penelope Keith appears in the film as the Gestapo Nanny. For those interested in very trendy London fashions, then you'll probably enjoy this film. Or if you're interested in a very different comedy that is very cartoon-like you might enjoy this film. If not, then you'll have your finger on the fast forward button a lot.
