Best of the "Confessions" series
1 March 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this 1975 British comedy classic the first time in 1982 on cable. I loved it. I've seen all the "Confessions" and this one I think is the best. I see that it is no longer available as well as the others. That is too bad. I searched high and low to get it on VHS and I finally got it. Simple story of Timmy Lea, an accident-proned blunderer and his brother-in law Sid Nogget a get-rich-quick schemer decide to manage a local pop band and try to get them off the ground. Of course Timmy runs in to his share of promiscuous women in the process. Very funny British humor.
