After the critically acclaimed 'Mona Lisa' Jordan made this misstep into comedy that joins the mini-genre of comedies without laughs. He followed this with another excretion (We're No Angels) before finding his own voice again. The casting here is pretty awful with no one save Liz Smith (in a small part) making any impression. An embarrassment on everyone's filmography.
It really is so bad it's brilliant. I adore this film for sentimental, childhood watching reasons! The hovering nuns still freak me out, I always think twice before watching it just for that scene, haha.
