Great laugh!
16 January 2004 | by dreamyyakSee all my reviews

Why people insist on being so "holier than thou" about this genre escapes me. It's good escapist fun. Askwith and Booth are having a bit of fun with the girls and scoring a lot of laughs in the process. From an age of more innocent sensibilities, these films rank as some of the funniest ever made, alongside Carry On, Benny Hill, Are You Being Served etc., etc. And the girls!!!! WOW!

Stop analysing it and just enjoy! In the meantime, if anyone would like to re- open the series with "Confessions of a film reviewer", I'd love Askwith's role!!
