Audience Reviews for Trouble in Store

Lovely charisma by Norman Wisdom,the joy of this movie comes from the roulette joggling of the slapstick elements,the wonderful supporting cast (Rutherford as a rather..."innocent" rich granny),a comedy keeping the precise scope,numerous chases,the occasional romance but beware,anarchy ensues!!
