This review is from: The Plank [DVD] (DVD)
The whole film is old school comedy - in other words, TRULY funny. Modern comedy,with it's foul mouth.have a dig at everyone,insult all - including the audience - and lack of irony (they often call it irony when it's really sarcasm) - could learn a lot about real humour by watching this gem.Eric Sykes was a gifted man and it shows in this short film.The gentle digs at the British public are funny and still have a truth about them that rings true today.
I wish that comedy today was more like this - it offends very few,entertains very many and leaves you with a sense that most things can be funny without the need to shout and insult.
Thank you Eric Sykes for reminding us that life is funny at times and that it is Ok to smile at everyday life without causing offence.
