That Riviera Touch (1966) Poster

It's a great film and you could write a thesis about why two working class lads from the North of England share the money - Eric wins it, Ernie takes it - but that's showbusiness.

| Poor outing for one of UK TV's favourite comic pairs.
As many have said, this is a woefully disappointing film. That two of UK's favourite TV comedians (albeit not two of my favourites) could appear in such an unfunny movie is a terrible shame. The script and comic situations quite simply fall short of the mark needed to be funny, and although Eric's boisterous on-screen personality sometimes lifts a laugh from the creaky material you are left wishing for some original witty lines to appear.

The supporting cast is almost entirely devoid of those stalwarts of British comedy films that help to glean laughs from mediocre material. Perhaps appearances from the like of John le Mesurier or Irene Handl would have helped to lift this film, but as things are we are left to a string of character actors that don't know how to play at comedy.

The score is by the masterful Ron Goodwin, and this adds some momentum to the proceedings; much needed but ultimately wasted.

In short, this film is really only for fans of Eric and Ernie, and even then, you'd be better searching out their TV material.
