Insulting and unfunny British smut with a capital S!
Now 70 years old, and coincidentally born and bred but 15 minutes drive from my own childhood home in Kent, here is a Director with a resume to die for - in other words, he should have been put out of our misery before he ever came close to picking up a camera. About the only decent thing he ever achieved was to write an episode of THE SAINT in 1962.
Utter and complete crap farce - a wannabe DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE/CARRY ON DOCTOR without the budget, actors, script or production resources. Very sad to see accomplished old stagers Graham Stark and John Le Mesurier prostituting their art in this woeful and trashy piece of celluloid. Relevant perhaps of the film's stature that no-one in all these years has sought to comment on it! Like its sequel WHAT'S UP SUPERDOC? this realistically should carry a minus rating!
