Classic Comedy
12 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it first went out on the BBC in the UK i.e. 1989. That I can still remember it after all these years (18!) says a lot. This is a classic British made for TV comedy film very much in the classic English comedy tradition. And it is indeed very funny in a dark bleak sense.

Contains the classic line "the whole point of a cash deal is that you get the cash". If it every comes on TV then you really should take the time to watch it. As far as I know i has not been repeated in the UK since the original showing but we can live in hope that this situation will be rectified at some point!
