A lightweight ensemble comedy in which ingenious plotting is let down by weak dialog and stop-go direction that largely squanders the talent involved.

There's more method than inspired madness to "Blame It on the Bellboy," but this scenic, fast-paced farce by a first-time British director is still effervescent fun.

"Blame It on the Bellboy" is a farce in the grand British tradition, set on the Grand Canal of Venice. And that, alas, is pretty much the sum total of what is grand about it.

Writer/director Mark Herman does a nice job of setting up the misadventure and then sitting back and letting it play itself out.

It's lowbrow humor for the masses, and as such, it succeeds quite well.

Writer-director Mark Herman, with his first film, would like to deliver a throwback to the knockabout sex farces of old, but his touch is too heavy-handed and his jokes lack imagination.
