Excellent acting, loaded with humor.
29 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Pure entertainment. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys films from this time period. Nigel Hawthorn's acting makes this film a sheer delight. I was equally surprised with Joan Collins who plays a snobby rich woman most convincingly. The plot is based on two rich families trying to get their children to marry. It turns out that one of the daughters is already married secretly. Everything gets hilariously all mixed up. A movie to relax by.

Watch for the scene when Nigel Hawthorn is applying make-up to his aging face. An amazing and unique actor.
