I looked forward to seeing this so much, when you see the quality of actors and actresses, Hugh Lloyd and Joan Sims were both gifted comedy performers, but the pair were let down by poor scripts, a cliche in every corner, and jokes that even for 1977 were ancient and tired. I get the impression that Lloyd and Sims tried their best, as did guest like Alfie Bass and Jack Watling, but let's face it they were up against it with the poor scripts. It's not funny, but it's not totally without charm, it has a certain sentimentality, and a few nice moments, but as a comedy, sadly it lacks any laughs.
