[Albert has asked Harry and Frank to take his body from the morgue and bury it in Germany when he dies. Harry, who is a taxi-driver, thinks that there could be a problem with doing this... ]
Harry:It's against my licence to carry a corpse... or a rabid dog, come to think of it.
Frank:[angrily] Fine, I'll order a mini-cab!
Harry:All right, all right. But if they catch us, they'll certify us. How would you like to spend the rest of your life in a padded cell?
Frank:[angrily] No problem... just so long as it isn't with you.

Very Enjoyable!, 13 December 2009
Author: Alec Lamberton from Central Coast, NSW, Australia

This was just shown on ABC in Australia, and it was an unexpected pleasure.

David Warner and David Jason mesh well as two tired, old men, trying to fulfill a deceased friend's dying wish. On the way they meet a lovely, if mysterious, girl called Vicki, and they have adventures as they journey across Europe at their friend's behest.

Warner and Jason mesh well, both at their best, Warner as a complete curmudgeon, Jason as slightly bewildered. Both still at the top of their game and pulling off some very good comedy timing.

It's that comedy that makes the movie, overlaying the sombre tone of two men coping with losing a good friend.

I certainly recommend giving it a shot, you may be surprised. 7/10
