And the Same to You

And the Same to You

George Pollock (1960)

U Certificate


Our Score
Any film boasting Sid James, Tommy Cooper and Brian Rix in the cast has to be worth a look, but there are few laughs to be had in this screen version of the stage farce The Chigwell Chicken. Rix stars as a singularly hopeless boxer who has to keep his career hidden from his disapproving archdeacon uncle. John Paddy Carstairs (who guided Norman Wisdom to fame) co-wrote the script with John Junkin, but every punch is pulled and not even Rix and James who had done well together on Dry Rot make it worth going the distance.


A priest's nephew struggles to hide his boxing career from his uncle. Comedy, which boasts a strong cast of British funnymen but lacks any sense of plot. Brian Rix, William Hartnell, Tommy Cooper, Leo Franklyn and Sid James star.
