A funny movie
22 October 2005 | by jps270770See all my reviews

Critics may lambaste this low budget flick - but i love it! - and this film still remains one of my all time favourite classic comedies (alongside 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles'.)Aimed primarily at a British audience - it may err on the side of British humour which other nationalities may find hard to understand the humour. I have to say that i laughed from start to finish with the script! What more can i say?..... Give it a watch - you will either love it or hate it! - but you certainly can't forget it! Lesley Phillips certainly fulfils his role as the Eccentric British funny-man. The film is not made out to be a classic but i feel that if you are after the humour and not flashy sets and Hollywood A-list actors, then its worth a watch! The film is certainly for an era gone by, but writing on behalf of the Eighties something generation - it is surprisingly hilarious!
