You can't fool all of the people all of the time?,
This review is from: The Fortune Cookie [DVD]  (DVD)
Excellent film, happily first viewed by myself courtesy of the good old BBC in the 70's, way back when they still showed decent films at Christmas (The Apartment etc) and every bit as enjoyable when watched again this weekend, & heaven knows on how many other occasions over the years!!.
I originally purchased this on the sadly dying Laserdisc format, but migrated when released on DVD for the convenience of not having to wrestle with 2 old disks and four sides. Think MGM have used the very same print for this issue as the minor imperfections in an otherwise superb image appear identical. Just go and buy it and immerse yourself in the fun, not sure why anyone would find the characters annoying, or feel that the film does not really go anywhere. The story finally returns full circle after closure of the failed scam to reveal both of the unwitting participants acting out the introduction, on the same playing field, this time with a small audience of somewhat bemused janitors and not thousands excited sports fans! GREAT STUFF!

Have you noticed how all the deceptive characters are the only ones who smoke?

Good old BBC? Currently showing on your TV screen, like it or not, "We All Pay Your Benefits" designed to make people with learning disabilities feel rotten about themselves?
