A punch-drunk comedy.
30 August 2004 | by (Stockton, England) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that you watch more for the cast than it's plot (or even for its quality). The likes of William Hartnell (who gives a great comic performance), Sid James (who only seems to have two or three scenes) and, in one of his very rare film roles, Tommy Cooper, all seem to promise a much better film than the one that we get.

The problem lies in a fairly average script, which fails to ever really get going or to even get its plot to hang together. For example the climax is the surprise visit of the Arch-Deacon, a character who seems to arrive out of the blue and who was never mentioned previously in the film. Also everyone seems to have forgotten that Brian Rix is meant to be this film's star. Far more time is given to the likes of Hartnell and Vera Day and much more impact is made by James and Cooper, that Rix is pretty much sidelined.

Not a hidden gem or a particularly funny movie, it's worth checking out if you're a fan of British comedy (or just want to watch television's first 'Doctor Who' giving a brilliantly funny performance).
