Leslie Philips , Terry Thomas - how can it fail? By being made at a dire time for British comedy when it was felt that a smattering of nudity and a risque subject matter could make up for a lack of a funny script. The early 70s saw a large number of such films designed to take advantage of growing sexual freedom at the cinema , and unfortunately they are mostly dreadful. The later Carry on..films had the same problem. If you consider how popular the Confessions films were you can see why producers saw this as a way to drag viewers away from their TV , but 40 years later these films simply dont stand up - nudge nudge wink wink. And yes that is the level of humour on display here - oops , done it again etc etc

This is a must for any Terry Thomas fan, I watched it years ago and loved it, I have seen this so many times and never get bored, this re-issue comes in a slim plastic case. Buy this if you like a good comedy.

Okay it's not the best film of all time but if you like posh public school cads such as Terry Thomas and Leslie Phillips, some 1975 girls in skimpy bikinis and bad hair styles plus some poor Spanish acting then this is a film of an idyllic life!

Entertaining, The silly ending tends to detract from a well made film.

Leslie Philips and Terry Thomas together worth watching just for that. The film itself can be watched while you rest after a hard day - mild humor at a relaxed pace.

I agree with the other two reviewers that this film is not great. It's true that the actors are, unfortunately, past their prime for the roles they are playing but I didn't find this film as bad as others would have you believe. It's not up their with the Gods but it's not as bad as syphilis either. If you have a liking for British comedy and understand it as a product of it's time there is definitely some fun to be had. 3 stars. Well worth buying.

Cheeky film very much of its time. Corny storyline, but has a certain charm and thanks to the main actors it just about succeeds in raising a smile.

Picture: very good quality (16:9)
Sound: mono, but also very good quality.
Extra's: Fullframe version (4:3), Trailer, Music Suite with 55+ minutes of music from the movie (mono), and a gallery with 50+ pictures.
The extra's are an excellent idea, I think.
I'm quite happy to have it in my collection.
