    This is the worst movie ever made. It is the only one I have ever walked out of in a theatre. 0 stars.

    While it is not what one would expect from such great comedians as Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, it is also not quite so bad as others make it out to be either. There are definitely funny parts, and witty dialogue, although there are also parts that make me shake my head and go "Was that really neccessary?" Or "Well that was over the top." It could have been a better written, considering the writers, but I did find it amusing enough that I rewatch it occassionally. So all in all is it a bad movie? Not entirely. Is it worth watching? If you like campy spoof type movies, then yes.

    Not as good as Bedazzled or The Wrong Box (a personal favorite of mine based on a book Robert Louis Stevenson wrote with his stepson), but I still found it funny and amusing. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore should have made more movies!

    Really clever and really funny. Sherlock Holmes meets the Goon Show meets Monty Python meets Airplane. I laughed long and hard. Lots of great one-liners.

    Very humorous pastiche. Cook and Moore are on top form, but it's dear Kenneth who steals the show!

    This was disappointing. Written by and starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, but it just falls flat. It all feels like Monty Python, except decidedly non-funny. Although, I must say the scene where Cook explains to the one-legged runner why he can't be hired is absolutely classic, and more than Python-worthy. But the rest is just simply "smile mildly" funny...

    For some reason (before I noticed this was the Moore and Cook version) I thought this was going to be a thriller ala Sleepy Hollow. It was in fact hilarious!
