Haven't actually got around to watching this yet but the cast is enough to entice you in, as if having Peter Cook and Dudley Moore in the film wasn't enough Spike Milligan, Terry Thomas and so many more.Great Value would recommend this seller.

Very very funny wobderful its Classic vintige stars in it. Very much if not better than the best of the Carry On's at thr hieght of their popularity. Great lines by Kenny Williams and the rest of the cast.

Oh my god this film is completely nutty, typical Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore, funny in some ways, but the piano in the background gets on your nerves.

Loved it! Another brilliant bit of acting from Dudley Moore in several parts along with Peter Cook, and a a host of supporting stars, not to be missed.

I first saw this when I was 18 (Many moons ago) and it has been a constant source of amusement ever since. The inuendo and double entendre is thick throughout the film. Familiar stars pop up in the most peculiar places and the script, well you could use it in a million and one situations! They managed to incorporate some of Cook & Moore's beloved characters (most notably Mr Spiggot the one legged "runner") Yes this is hardly a "PC" movie. It drags (ha ha) in bits but then lo and behold, Mrs. Holmes comes onto the scene, who is the beloved detective's mother. Playing this wonderful Jewish mother (who nonetheless eats pork pies), who is running a faux clairvoyant service in her back room. The script here is priceless. Laugh and you kick yourself for missing more of it, but laugh you will. The relationship between "Sherl" and "Watty" is truly painted in colour, as is the upbringing of the great detective himself. The film is long and you'll find yourself fast forwarding the slow bits, but the cast is stellar and no doubt, you too, will find parts of this movie that will become so close to your heart, that will find yourself using the exact lines in everyday conversation!

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's The Hound of the Baskervilles is a rather marvellous comedy, all in all. Written by Cook, it sticks mainly to the plot of the sherlock holmes original, and is full of amusing sight gags, ridiculous dialogue and a fair few funny walks too. Probably not as good as anything the pair produced as Derek and Clive, this is still damn fine entertainment.
