Goofs

The first day of the fortnight-long Fenn Street trip to Woodbridge is said to take place on the 29th of the month. After the £40 goes missing from the Boulters' chalet, and as the Dunstables arrive to collect Dennis, Cromwell's office calendar gives the date as the 15th. However, Hedges says there is still another week left of the stay. See more »

Quotes

Eric Duffy: All right, the experiment has worked with us, but we're just kids. I still maintain we can get more significant results with a mature, intelligent, adult.
Dennis Dunstable: You mean, like one of the teachers?
Eric Duffy: I said *intelligent*, Den!

As good as an Ealing Comedy in its own way
28 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Highly under-rated British comedy with many memorable characterisations, not a bad script, and a wonderful feel-good factor.

John Alderton is pretty much faultless as Hedges - this is fine comic acting.

Especially enjoyable if you grew up in the 1970s. Standout sequence for me is when Hedges (and we) think 5c have gone to bed for the night and he heads off to the pub with Price... only to bump into his pupils there. Nicely done.

Other amusing sequences also, and I can sum up the film using an expression of Dennis's (one of the characters)... "Yeah! Double NEAT!!"
