Poverty stricken attempt at comedy
1 December 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Given that 2 of the original "Goons" are in this and one is the writer you would expect this to be at least reasonably funny.Bentine was one of the most inventive writers for TV.His "Its A Square World" was at the time hilarious and won international awards.Here everything falls flat.The only actor who is in any way funny is Freddy Frinton who is relying on his drunk act.The rest is embarrassingly bad.Particularly a boxing sketch at the end.Pity Bentine did not watch Chaplin or Laurel & Hardy.The musical numbers featuring Hy Hazell and the chorines are numbingly bad.The sets are so shoddy and small you feel that if anyone were to lean on them they would come crashing down.If anyone wants a reason why cinemas shut down in such large numbers in the 50s they need look no further than this film for their answer.
