A comedy thriller of charm and humour.
26 December 2004 | by (Hastings, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Charters and Caldicott are characters who first appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 film "The Lady Vanishes'. Now retired, by Jove, from "doing something at the Foreign Office" for 40 years, they share a passion for cricket - and then they find themselves caught up in mystery, murder and mayhem. After discovering the body of a young woman in Caldicott's London flat, they blithely bungle their way through intrigue and more murder until they end up - inevitably - at a cricket match.

This is a total delight, from start to finish, not least because of the wonderful performances of all involved, and because of the absurd juxtaposition of two elderly and always courteous gentlemen and the world of corruption and violence they blunder into. Highly recommended.
