I didn't find this to be all that funny.
Perhaps the closest John Cleese has come to portraying Basil Fawlty on the big screen, as a perfectionist headteacher on his way to a conference of his peers in this farcical comedy.
Things, of course, go from bad to worse, as he manages to miss his train (due to another of those "Left? Right!" misunderstandings), and as Cleeses character slowly crumbles under the pressure of making it on time.
Then it's a race against time to get to Norwich. As this comedy picks up pace it becomes very enjoyable....and there are a lot of mad old woman who should never have been released from the hospital. 163 miles later....
Sounds instantlty forgettable, yet it works really well.
