Tired Farce
15 December 2012 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The situation used in this film must have been well worn when this film was released.So there is no a great deal of humour to be extracted from the situation.I am not to fond of Tom Walls as he tends to overact all the time.since he is the director of this film there is no one to restrain him.The only funny thing about him is his hair do.It looks as if he has had his hair in curlers all night.Ralph Lynn is the same in all the films.Unfortunately Robertson Hare only has a small part in this film.Yvonne Arnaud is the female foil and she is quite funny but not enough to save this film.If you have nothing better to do then it is worth watching.Otherwise there are better farces than this particularly from the aldwych team.
