A light "hearted" comedy - good for a rainy afternoon.
4 August 2003 | by simey123See all my reviews

This is a quirky little movie with Hardy Kruger playing a young college graduate. Nice performance from Kruger in a sort of Brian Rix farce at the end when he is trying to entertain several girls - the reason why he is doing this escapes me at the moment. This is very much in the vain of the Ealing comedies - don't try to find the hidden depths there aren't any. Just go along with it and enjoy. Hardy Kruger is very popular with English audiences - he fits in well with our vision of the likeable German. Obviously his main claim to fame is the aircraft designer in "Flight of the Phoenix", but he has appeared in several war movies over the years.
