      Audience Member Its watchable for Diana Rigg and Oliver Reed together and in their prime, but the film itself is pretty poor. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member "Spare me this catalog of mediocrity!" What a great film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I have adored this film for many years. I am happy with its absurdities and bravura performances. I am also pleased it seems so distant from 21st Century sensibilities. Further, I can't help but suspect of a larger meaning lurking in it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review delysid d i liked this, i thought it was a little weird though and bored me Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/17/18 Full Review Audience Member This is a brilliantly executed movie w a great cast and storyline. One of my all time favourite movies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Reed and Rigg are delightful in this witty black comedy.
