Worth watching - if you can find it
19 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I managed to catch up with this film only very recently, after having searched for it for a long while. I originally watched it in the cinema, and remembered enjoying it. Second time round - watching at home I was a little disappointed - but still had a few laughs. However what made me really recall the film was the catchy title song, composed by Lionel Bart, although Ron Goodwin is given screen credit - it is also played and sung right through the end credits. Anthony Newley was his usual competent self, as was of course Harry Andrews as Chief Officer Williams. In The Nick is not a great film, but is worth watching, and I'm sure you will have your toes tapping to the title song.
