Everbody here seems to consider this one as a masterpiece of British comedy. I found this film very silly with grotesque situations and pale caricatures...not funny and the cheesy 80s mood makes it even worse. Just my opinion. Maybe you'll say that I don't have any sense of humor. I don't give a damn.
Molto carino,con spruzzate di quel tipico humor inglese a volte un pò banalotto ma sempre gradevole.La trama non è molto arzigogolata,si segue bene,i personaggi sono carini e quasi mai enfatici,e le gag sono piacevoli(quella col montaggio alternato del doppio menage è forse la migliore).Finale un pò sottotono, ma cmq resta una pellicola assolutamente apprezzabile.
Fitfully amusing if generally lacking in style and aplomb. The lineage to the much earlier Ealing Studios comedies seems tacked-on to this film like an undeserved old-age rosette (on account of a shared director). There's a coarseness of situation and too much bad language to provide anything other than a bridge to nowhere.
Incredibly funny and has one particularly inspired performance from Kevin Kline as an eccentric criminal. It combines elements of noir and British comedy perfectly blended to a humorous pitch. The third act is a bit too wacky for my tastes but it still merits a viewing.
