Good remake of one of the best Carry Ons
14 March 2020 | by jamesmcconnonSee all my reviews

Only 7 people in the cinema today. Can't think why. Anyone would think there was a global pandemic on our something.

Misbehavior was pretty good. It's basically the true story of the Miss World protest that inspired the peerless Cary on Girls (who said protest doesn't achieve anything.)

Was worried that it might be a bit po faced and humourless, but it was actually pretty funny, and very entertaining. Rhys Ifans unleashed his inner Sid James, Kelley Hawes was very nearly as good as Joan Simms as his wife, and Kiera Knightly was good in the June Whitfield part, although you can't beat the original.

The subplot about the two black women, one of whom was the first from South Africa and the other one the first black woman to win Miss World, was actually pretty lovely, and very well done. It's worth seeing the film for that alone.

Only real weak spot was Greg Kinnear as Bob Hope. Not sure if it was him being bad, or the fact that Bob Hope was a bit crap, really, and he captured that perfectly.

Worth seeing. Even if it does have a huge Bernard Bresslaw in a frock shaped hole.
