Run for Your Wife is undoubtedly corny, thanks to a bad script, dreadful acting and lack of comic value, but this British comedy is surprisingly quite watchable.

It's hard to believe that the play could have warranted a 9-year theatrical run in 1983. I guess the past really is a foreign country. One populated exclusively by toddlers.

I appreciate Run For Your Wife is supposed to be dumb, but rarely has a film aimed so low and missed its target so woefully.

Unfortunately, there's no irony or retro self-awareness about this adaptation, which is played as if the last 30 years simply haven't happened.

A bizarre, ill-advised antediluvian folly. Like Jurassic Park.

Run for the exit.

Hopelessly dated, poorly executed material.

British farces work on stage, but usually feel agonisingly stupid on screen. And this is a worst-case scenario, as playwright Cooney adapts his classic 1983 farce without even the slightest adjustment for the cinema.

So poorly executed and the material so hopelessly dated that it traduces its (sort of) honourable origins as a theatrical farce to become nothing less than utterly farcical.

Somewhere out there is a Royal Variety show missing its line-up.

Truly dire. An offensive, witless farrago... The film's social attitudes - to homosexuality, women, marriage - appear to have been preserved in mothballs since the 1970s. Given air now, they give off an offensive odour.

Doesn't even count as a missed opportunity.

The end result feels more like a museum relic than a zinging contemporary comedy.

The trouser-dropping 80s stage farce finally hits the big screen with Danny Dyer, to kill off any remaining British self-respect.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It is abysmal, dealing in outdated stereotypes that will leave you in a state of appalled amazement.
