Bad remake of Laughter in Paradise
18 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The film is a very bad remake of Laughter in Paradise, with all the subtlety left out and some crude slapstick put in. It is hard on the actors to be compared with their illustrious predecessors but though they are capable of wonderful performances in other films they are awful in comparison with the actors in Laughter in Paradise. I am afraid that Michael Horden is no Alistair Sim. Nor is Ronny Corbett any George Cole. The sole improvement is the Michael Horden scene where he tried to steal some pearls, stuffing an endless string into his pocket. Arthur Lowe was good as the Police Sergeant Eleanor Summerfield was in both films very good as Sheila Wilcott Sim's lovely secretary. But alas she is no match for Joyce Grenfell's Elizabeth Robson.
