I regard myself fortunate to have met Norman Wisdom once. He was doing some promotional work up in Newcastle in the late 1990s.

Up in the World sees hapless Norman play a window cleaner on a big country estate. It has more windows that roof tiles. Norman has to put up the spoilt brat of the household. Some bad guys plan to kidnap the heir to the title.

Norman is forced to take the lad to a nightclub in London where Norman causes havoc during a magic act. The bad guys make a kidnap attempt and poor Norman lands in jail.

Some of it is silly fun, but it is not a good film. Norman Wisdom's schtick has aged a bit. The bumbling about, the slapstick comes across as irksome. The singing is irritating.
