Storyline

Three young Cockneys take a day off work to meet a foreign movie star at Heathrow airport. She joins them and their taxi driver while she collects some typically British hats. The main rule of the game is to steal a hat from its wearer, so the film is a musical chase around Swinging Sixties London, evading press and police. Written by Mitch Park

Awful, dated movie
19 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

With a few very well known faces of British film and TV and many has- beens the only good thing about this movie is the 60's scenery around what was then a very run down and dirty London.

British films were in a huge slump and many of these terrible teen movies were made to try and attract the young people to the movie theatres.

If I had been one of them I would have asked for a refund.

The choreography is OK, the songs twee and forgettable, the editing is horrific.

The best parts of this are the great fashions and the welcome end titles.
