For a comedy show with a comedian's usual TV or on-stage "Mandy" gags to put on the silver screen, this must go to Dick Emery and his usual phrases. You wouldn't be able to make this film nowadays as it is over 40 years but still a bit of fun and fine if you have no alternative TV shows to watch. It also features a casting of Derren Nesbitt best known for his appearance in Where Eagles Dare.
In theory, it's quite acceptable for a Dick Emery show though a bit daft and the gags don't seem to work out well. Nevertheless, there are some scenes with blondes and brunettes in short skirts and tight shorts together with some slight degree of nudity for a PG rating. Alas, the peachiness of women in that era was different for they were sometimes flat and skinny. On the other hand, the film does reflect on London's street scenes and lead-burning automobiles of the bygone era.
