| I just don't get it.
My question is this: Was this short film EVER funny in ANY decade in ANY country? I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't even born yet in 1969 and I am not overly impressed with a lot of older British humor. However, "It's Your Move" seems like something most other people wouldn't be able to enjoy also.

For starters, there is very little dialogue. Nobody ever actually holds a conversation in this film. They flail their arms about and motion to each other. Occasionally someone will blurt out a word or short phrase. It is never made clear why they do this but it takes the word "frustrating" to a whole new level.

The main premise of the film is about a couple moving into their new home. Nothing works right in the house and the occupants seems like idiots for evidently purchasing it sight unseen. To make things worse, they have hired the world's worst movers. These guys bust pretty much everything they lay their hands on. No matter though. The homeowners barely seem to care.

If watching people pantomime and break lots of things leaves you in stitches then maybe you'll enjoy this. For me, it took everything in my power not to fall asleep during its brief running time of about 25 minutes. 1/10
