Inn for Trouble

Inn for Trouble

C M Pennington-Richards (1960)

U Certificate


Our Score
This movie spin-off from The Larkins, the popular sitcom of the late 1950s, moved the family away from 66 Sycamore Street and into a country pub, and that's where the problems begin. One of the series' great strengths was its portrayal of a typical urban neighbourhood, populated by familiar characters. A whole new world had to be created here, however, with only Pa and Ma (David Kossoff and Peggy Mount) and Eddie (Shaun O'Riordan) providing continuity. Even the presence of Leslie Phillips and Charles Hawtrey can't make up for the general lifelessness of the characterisations.


A suburban couple devise a series of bizarre publicity stunts in an effort to pull the punters into their failing country pub. Based on popular comedy The Larkins, starring Peggy Mount, David Kossoff, Leslie Phillips and Charles Hawtrey.
