Movie Info

Ebullient British music-hall comedian Norman Wisdom made his movie debut in Trouble in Store. The scene is a large department store, where the bumbling Norman (Wisdom) has somehow landed a clerical job. The rest of the film is a series of slapstick catastrophes, some hilarious, others less so. Along the way, Norman saves the store from falling into the clutches of gangsters -- and wins the heroine besides. Wisdom's perennial straight-man Jerry Desmonde has a meaty role, as do British film-faves Margaret Rutherford and Moira Lister. Evidently this film meant a great deal to Norman Wisdom, for in 1992 he titled his autobiography Trouble in Store. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Trouble in Store

Lovely charisma by Norman Wisdom,the joy of this movie comes from the roulette joggling of the slapstick elements,the wonderful supporting cast (Rutherford as a rather..."innocent" rich granny),a comedy keeping the precise scope,numerous chases,the occasional romance but beware,anarchy ensues!!
