Is this the worst British film of the 1960s or all time?
4 May 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film is truly awful and must be one of the worst British films that i have ever had the misfortune to watch>Further more the cast contains many familiar actors from the time who must have been really hard up to have had to accept a part in this film.It is virtually plot less and contains a number of sketches connected to the fact that Freddie and his band are scouts.The only one of any interest was that involving wrestling which was still at the height of its success.In the full running time i dd not laugh once.It is a shame when there are still so many fine British films unreleased on DVD that a company decided that this was worthy of a DVD release.I gave it one out of 10 only because i cannot give it its rightful mark which is zero.
