Truly execrable remake of a fine film
4 November 2019 | by malcolmallsop-04042See all my reviews

Why did they bother? Laughter In Paradise is a classic, charming British comedy. This, almost line for line remake, is just like a bad impressionist on an end of pier summer show. Leaden, dull, totally lacking in sparkle. I can only assume the very good cast were just doing it for the money. A film of zero artistic integrity.
