Very much of it's time, this comedy features plenty of famous faces from
British comedy and a style of humour that is based more on attitude than
fantastic jokes. As such it isn't really that funny but is more amiable
than anything else. The laughs are expected to come from the juxtaposition
of the cockney slang with the monk's dress. It works to a certain extent
but really you need to be content to make do with this style of humour and
not much else. I rarely laughed out loud and the set up only brought a
vague sense of humour to the film.
The story goes nowhere in particular. I won't be spoiling anything to say
that our gangsters soon fall into the monk's life with a certain affection.
Rather than go anywhere the film just gets as much mileage out of the set up
as possible before quickly drawing things to a close with an unsatisfying
and hasty conclusion. It is pretty poor but if you're after a dated piece
of British comedy then this is OK but not as funny as the better of the
Carry On series.
The cast are OK. All well know faces playing their caricatures to full
effect. Windsor is a little annoying and the film uses her for her blonde
bimbo looks and her breasts. The majority all have cockney clichés to act
out and do it with a certain amount of fun. It's good to see faces like
Cribbins, Fraser, Kaye, Brambell and Hayes in a film.
Overall this is not very good but I didn't expect very much from basically a
sub-Carry On caper movie. Manages to get some smiles out of the set up but
really it's a bit stretched with nowhere to go at the end.
