Excellent little episode
3 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on TV. I suppose having no expectations helped, but this knocked spots off many other high budget comedy horror efforts I've seen. The scene between Lois, tired & careworn, & Herbert, tired but frisky on their anniversary night, was genuinely touching. The love between them looked tender & genuine (incidentally, in real life they've been married for 34 years now). My heart went out to Lois' put-upon timid doormat who looked like .... well, she wouldn't win any beauty contests. BUT the transformation when she put the ring on! Hubba hubba! It just proves it ain't what you got, it's what you do with it. The rest was pretty well what you'd expect - but done with panache. In fact the whole thing was directed & edited with so many nice touches; one that springs to mind was the cuts to the waxwork faces looking at Danny DeVito when he steals the ring.

Brilliant. An unpretentious little gem.
