Don't Bother To Watch
3 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a sex comedy without the sex and without the comedy.It is suspiciously like the big success of the early sixties,Boeing Boeing.It is a failed attempt by Richard Todd to reignite his career as a light comedian.He was 42 at the time and tries to romance girls half his age.A big surprise is seeing Judith Anderson in rubbish such as this.No wonder Todd made no further attempt at comedy.
