No, I won't, I am raving mad! Well, Mr Norman Wisdom strikes again. Another over-the-top comedy with his trademark style. Now his genuine "Don't laugh at me " song is included too. What surprises me here is good timing in very well choreographed crowd scenes. The supermarket "sale-out" day is represented as one solid piece of mass hysteria.
The old lady, who steals everything in sight, is almost stealing the show well, she could have stolen this movie if it were not a Norman movie. Mr Norman Wisdom makes some impressive stunts here (roller-skating along the busy streets of London, performing some rather dangerous acrobatic jumps and falls, and playing with fire).
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the way the comedies are to be made. No modern stuff can beat it. When another Hollywood so-called "comedy" comes to the screen nowadays, I am 99% sure it is going to be junk with less than 5% of healthy giggles potential. And whenever I watch a Norman Wisdom movie, "laughing my ass off" is guaranteed. Like it or not, Mr Norman Wisdom is a comic genius, like Mr Charlie Chaplin, Mr Buster Keaton, and Mr Arkadiy Raikin.
If you don't like this movie, you are probably dead, bright green, and are about to smell bad (no offence here).
With deep respect to the master, 10 out of 10. Thank you for attention.
