Dull comedy
29 December 2018 | by vrparrattSee all my reviews

The patriarch of a family in Ireland dies and and bequests each of his relatives with a sum of money. One small caveat, there is no money so they decide to take in paying guests, well half do and the other half try to sabotage the scheme. There's a host of British comedy stars but none of them really shine, least of all Jimmy Edwards.
