Mildly Amusing
6 March 2018 | by ONensloSee all my reviews

Synopsis to the contrary, the film is in fact about a pair of reporters attempting to infiltrate a gambling ring that sets up illegal parties in rented premises. The comedy is a bit heavy handed, but the film is brief enough not to be annoying. There will be many familiar faces for viewers who have enjoyed British cinema from that era. Overall, a harmless and occasionally interesting story, if you enjoy period decor and street scenes. Will neither kill nor thrill, but it passes the time in a not entirely unpleasant manner.
