Doesn't Hold Up
3 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is based on the comic strip in England, which ran for many years, chronicling Jane, a pretty young lady who gets herself involved in situations and somehow ends up losing her dresses in the process. The lead, Ms. Oorter, was the model for Jane, but herein lies the problem for me. I feel that though she is an attractive lady she was too old to play her (she was about 36 when the film was released). I imagined Jane should be younger and they somewhat rectified that situation in a film called "Jane And The Lost City", made in the 80's. This film muddles along and the plot is pretty flimsy. There are elements of interest, but I feel even Peter Butterworth, who was in many Carry On films later, is somewhat wasted as a drunken man just stumbling around. Not horrible by any means, its just not that good. "Jane And The Lost City", though campy, was better. This film is less than an hour, but I still feel it was not good enough.
