      martin a I really loved this, high camp, slapstick! Basically, a newly married bank manager who lives above the bank and his friend the head cashier ends up being mixed up in a large delivery of pornography by mistake and keeps trying to dispose of the stash so that the top manager is waging a war on pornography does not find out. On top of this, the man's battle-ax mother comes to stay and ends up spending time with the bank manager boss. It is quite funny in parts and very enjoyable, and some great Cameos from Dad's army, porridge, and more! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Directed by Cliff Owen (That Riviera Touch (1967), Steptoe and Son (1972) and Ooh... You Are Awful (1972)), this adaptation of Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot's hit 1971 play, adapted for film by Marriott, Brian Cooke and Johnnie Mortimer. This is a very funny farce with a lot of innuendos and misunderstandings, but it has a very good cast as well. Brian Runnicles (Ronnie Corbett) works for Barclays Bank in Windsor, life is good for him. But one day, he receives a packages which he thinks is his new digital calculator, but it isn't. In fact, it's a box filled with dirty photos. But it doesn't stop there, due to a mix-up, he's receiving blue films and pornographic books. Which he has to hide from his boss Mr. Bromley (Arthur Lowe) who is a staunch anti-porn crusader. Brian, with help from bank executive David Hunter (Ian Ogilvy) and his wife Penny (Susan Penhaligon) try to dispose of the filthy evidence, but then David's mother Bertha (Beryl Reid) has just landed for a few days. This is a very funny farce, the sort you don't get these days, maybe because it would be branded as dated, But we need comedy like this again, and Corbett steals the film, (as he does with nearly everything else he does), and it has a touch of Carry On about it, with the wordplay and double entendres. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic Comedy Farce From Ronnie Corbett & Arthur Lowe About An Accidental Mix-Up & Pornography. Hilarious Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member If I remember rightly, this wasn't a very good or funny film. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member despite seeing Valerie Leon and Mags Nolan in their undies - this was a poor screen adaption of a classic british theatre farce Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member If I remember rightly, this wasn't a very good or funny film.
