2.0 out of 5 stars A £100,000 for a bit of Rumpy Pumpy..., 17 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Blame It On The Bellboy [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Mike Lawton, Maurice Horton, and Melvin Orton are three men who come to Venice.

One of them is a hit man sent to take out a mobster. Another is a dirty old Mayor, looking for a little action with a woman he never met, whom he was set up with.

And one of them was sent by his employer to inspect a property his boss wants to buy. All three men are at the same hotel.

But when the bellboy gets their names mixed up and gives info meant for someone else. So one of them meets a Realtor who will do whatever she has to, to close the sale. And another follows a woman looking for romance....

The early nineties and late eighties were a strange time for British cinema, before the advent of Trainspotting, all the UK were famous for was really Carry On, Merchant and Ivory, and awful attempts at TV stars becoming movie stars.

This movie tries to go for the old farcical movies of the seventies, and it succeeds to an extent, albeit with a bigger budget, and a wonderful cast.

The problem is that the film is too short, and needs to elaborate a little more on some of the sub plots. Moore is brilliant, but his little story gets sidelined in favour of the other two.

The mayor and Patsy Kensit sequence is genuinely funny, but the hit man segment isn't really up to scratch, and the pigeon killings is just a rip off of the dog joke in A Fish Called Wanda.

Its watchable, but don't expect something clever, its as if someone has made an anthology movie, blended the three stories and then had the titular character tie up the loose ends.
