Frightfully old-fashioned British comedy
6 March 2000 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

Originally made for the cinema, this film was deemed so awful by the distributors that it resulted in a straight-to-video release. It's easy to see why. 'Caught in the Act' desperately wants to be another 'Four Weddings and a Funeral', but it's stupid, pointless and completely unbelievable.

The trio of female leads turn in terribly childish performances (especially the annoyingly-voiced Sara Crowe) and the supporting actors are even worse! With a juvenile script and stereotyped characters, the movie seems to be stuck in a 1950's timewarp.

Only the acting of comedy veteran Leslie Phillips raises the level above utter farce.

'Caught in the Act' is embarressing and ultimately very forgettable.
