Quotes

[Peggy has arranged a delivery of plants and bushes to brighten up the boat. She gives the delivery man two coins as a tip, and he looks disdainfully at her lack of generosity]
Peggy: [referring to the flower display] You don't think I've overdone it, do you?
Flowerman: [referring to the tip] No, ma'am, I'd say you've judged it to a nicety: *you* won't miss it and *we* won't feel the impact of sudden wealth.

Nice English comedy - In the spirit of the early Carry On's
5 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

A nice little comedy. The adventures of a young couple who are forced to buy a house boat for somewhere to live.

Not mega budget and no special effects to speak of - just something to make you smile every now and then.

Sid James is his usual self. Liz Fraser is absolutely gorgeous and Irene Handl shows what a real star she was in her all to brief role
