Don't waste your time watching this rubbish!

A very unfunny film with lots of shouting and bellowing from the film's main star, Ronald Shiner, who for some odd reason seems to have been popular with comedy film goers in the 40' and 50's. Lots of silly, end of pier, third rate slap - stick antics, together with a crass storyline, and painfully contrived situations, makes this film a total dud! Watch out for the very cheesy dance sequences and the one song which was sleep inducing! Sorry, but after ten minutes into watching this awful film, I lost interest!
