Our Score
Taking a break from the buses, Reg Varney finds himself at a holiday camp in this old-fashioned seaside comedy. Although he's the world's worst entertainer, our Reg is convinced that the big time is just a soft-shoe shuffle away. But his ambition blinds him to the fact that his wife, Diana Coupland, is playing away from home with his boss. A trouper through and through, Varney always tries to make the most of even the lowest-grade material, yet even he struggles to pep up this maudlin mess, which has faint echoes of Tony Hancock's The Punch and Judy Man.


A holiday camp entertainer clings to his belief that fame is just around the corner, but his obsession drives his family away. Comedy drama, starring Reg Varney and Diana Coupland.
