You mean it wasn't meant to be a comedy????
29 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As one who could watch Timothy Dalton act out the contents of the telephone directory and still be totally fascinated, I looked forward to watching this "movie". It reminded me of one of those old soap productions you see clips of on "It'll Be Alright On The Night", only funnier!

The plot could have been straight out of something like "Dr Who" and nothing like I would have expected a Barbara Cartland novel to be. The only thing thinner was the scenery.

I can't say I wish I hadn't bothered because I still got to see Tim, even if it was in the best unintentional comedy ever.
