Overrated one-joke comedy which indulges Moore's perpetual drunk act as his wastrel playboy attempts to mend his ways in order to get his hands on an inheritance and a blushing bride. Some of the lines are funny, but how can one applaud a movie which relies so heavily on the novelty value of Gielgud as a bitter butler pronouncing profanities in a posh accent?

Classic comedy which plays on the absurdity of mega wealth falling into the wrong hands; or can it possibly be a story about redemption and it's the right hands after all? Throw a love story into the mix and it's a very entertaining (if a little dated) movie
