Typical half decent early '70's British Comedy ?
26 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

American V.I.P James burn II finds his son James Burn III (Bob Sherman) leading a giant "sleep-in" that has taken over Windsor Castle. He hires Nancy (Lulu) to get him out of the castle and into work. With the help of her crazy eccentric father, (Wilfred Hyde-White) who believes in working day and night and producing nothing and uses a fantastic astro-telescope for casual bird watching, she does just that ! But James junior believes in "Desire not Fire"..."Sex not Slavery" and soon opts out. From then on, it's a battle: she to get him back to work and the marriage bed... he to avoid work and find as many other beds as possible. These include his father's mistress (fiona Curzon), the aptly named Mrs Truelove (Priscilla Morgan) who gives him bed and board at the local pub, and a nymph's-maniac who can't stop talking (Julia Sutton).

Staring:

Lulu, Bob Sherman, Terry Thomas, Wilfred Hyde-White, Spike Milligan, Patrick Cargill, Jack Hulbert, Fiona Curzon.

I only got my hands on this for the Spike Milligan connection and the only version I could get my hands on is a transfer from a Betamax tape (remember those ?!?) onto DVD, so the quality isn't brilliant. This is just one of the many British comedy movies that flooded the cinema in the early '70's and really of any real value if you happen to be a Lulu fan or like me, trying to complete that Spike Milligan movie list. It's not a bad movie, but nothing special so don't expect a DVD reissue anytime soon...
