"The Honey Pot" is a bright, Technicolor extravaganza that combines good acting, a clever, complex plot, solid direction and outstanding production.

This is really a stage production that doesn't work that well as a movie.

Audience Reviews for The Honey Pot


A very, very youthful Maggie Smith in a supporting actress she gets swept into a "scripted murder mystery" of sorts....

A bit diffuse but played for fun by the entire cast and that helps alot. A little long but worth the time.
