isla s This is a short, amusing and entertaining film - a bit like a long TV program, very much of the 'Mr Bean' style of comedy (i.e. visual/slapstick based and with little scripted dialogue). It has a good cast and it's worth a watch if it comes on and sounds of interest to you, I'd say, so yes, I'd recommend it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A must in British comedy Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I find tommy copper moves and programs really funny and this ia one of the best. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the funniest films I have ever seen. My parents showed me this a while ago and I laughed so much that I started crying. While not being the most original comedy out there...wait a second, it doesn't need to! This is good ol' slapstick comedy at it's finest. This is an incredibly funny film that I think you all should watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A glorious time machine back into 60's London, as Cooper and Sykes career around the suburbs losing and finding their plank. Some of the gags may feel a little cliche at this stage and to some extent you wonder if some of the opportunity of having two such verbal geniuses has been missed in this non-verbal movie, but the comic timing and visual laughs keep it very enjoyable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member It's good but the original black & white short is an absolute masterpiece. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
