Storyline

Messrs Lawton (a hit-man), Horton (expecting some middle-aged dating agency nooky) and Orton (checking out properties for his boss) converge on the Hotel Gabriella in Venice. Linguistic mix-ups by the staff mean each of the trio get wrong instructions for the next day. So Horton meets up with puzzled estate agent Caroline to see what she's offering, Orton attempts to make a gang of hoods an offer they can't refuse on their villa, while Lawton sets off to rub out a lonely-hearts lady from Huddersfield.

I laughed so much I cried!
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent British comedy -totally underrated in my view - which is set in the beautiful city of Venice.

The cast includes the formidable Alison Steadman and many famous British TV and stage stars, and is headed by the talented Dudley Moore who gives a genius performance - one of his best since Arthur.

British films wouldn't be the same without a 'foreigner' - no Julia, Jamie or Andie in this one, but Bryan gives a surprisingly fine comic performance.

It comes right out of the traditional formula for the West End comedy farces - which quite frankly sometimes bore/annoy me and seem to star the old has been type actors/entertainers. But, BIOTB has more substance to it, has the bonus of being set in one of the world's most beautiful cities, and the acting is excellent.

I must admit, having visited the city not long before I saw the film (I saw it on big screen at the cinema), there was a bit of nostalgia there as well "ooh, I stood on that bridge" "I recognise that gondolier!" and "that's where I bought you that mask from!!!".

Easy to watch and pleasing to the eye, I would highly recommend this film.

I was still laughing out loud at the very end as the credits rolled.

Look, it may be silly, but it's fun. Enjoy!
