Charming British comedy from a bye-gone age.
4 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An entertaining and charming comedy film, which was possibly even a wee bit saucy for its time, but which nevertheless mirrors a long gone, gentler age. In many ways it is an "Ealing-like" film in its presentation and atmosphere. It is expertly scripted and full of witty asides, demonstrating the fast pace of the dialogue and action. It is very well played by all concerned, especially the unforgettable and much underrated, Meredith Edwards, who once again turns in a performance full of heart, gusto and brilliant timing. Typified by the courtroom scene, when he is trying desperately to retrieve his hidden nest egg from his errant wife's suitor. He never failed to produce a stand-out characterisation in a long and illustrious career in British films. A quaint and very enjoyable film that is well worth an hour of anyone's time.
