Dentist on the Job

CM Pennington-Richards (1961)

PG Certificate


Our Score
A year after cutting his teeth on Dentist in the Chair, Bob Monkhouse returned in this disappointing sequel that has a script so full of cavities you'll soon be wincing with pain and crying out for laughing gas. Newly qualified Monkhouse beams his way through a series of gags that could easily have been extracted from Doctor in the House author Richard Gordon's reject file. No film that numbers Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Connor, Eric Barker and Richard Wattis among its cast should be totally ignored, but there is a temptation to keep yelling the American title - Get On with It - at the screen.


Two newly qualified dentists unwittingly get involved in the invention and promotion of a new toothpaste. Comedy, starring Bob Monkhouse, Ronnie Stevens, Kenneth Connor, Shirley Eaton, Eric Barker, Richard Wattis and Charles Hawtrey.
