Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The overemphasis on carrying on at the expense of comedy is the main drawback in this patchy entry in the series. Containing more double entendres than an exhibition of smutty postcards, Talbot Rothwell's script spends too much time in the company of Terry Scott and the other clients of the Wedded Bliss Marriage Bureau. Consequently, we get nowhere near enough of the bureau's proprietors (the couple at the heart of the film, Hattie Jacques and Sid James), amorous spinster Joan Sims and marriage guidance counsellor Kenneth Williams. The sound you can hear during the slapstick wedding finale is barrels being scraped.
