Quotes

[last lines]
Ann Pornick - as a woman: Penny for 'em, Art?
Kipps - as a man: I dunno that I was thinking of anything really. Perhaps I was just thinking what a rum go everything is. Remember I used to say you can't be happy in this world if you don't live up to your position. Silly isn't it?
Ann Pornick - as a woman: Funny old Art.
Kipps - as a man: Ain't I? I don't suppose there was a chap ever like me before. Oh, I dunno though.

Kipps is a complete loser.
20 December 2000 | by dottee-2See all my reviews

Arthur Kipps is an incredible one dimensional boob and nitwit. I found the character totally unbelievable and quickly lost my patience and interest. The story line is basically an embellishment on the theme that a fool and his money are soon parted. Very unimaginative and predictable. It probably worked a lot better on the stage.
