      Isabel Quigly The Spectator If it weren't so characteristic, so dismally like so much else in British comedy, it wouldn't be worth a line; but its quite re- markable unfunniness, and above all the way it huffs and puffs to get its jokes, visual or spoken.

      Jim P There are some very funny bits in this movie, but it's understated British humour so they might pass you by… For example, the acronym for the Atomic Research Place is… N.A.R.S.T.I (!) Brilliant! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/24 Full Review Audience Member Dated British satire. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
