The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins

A pitiful collection of burlesque sketches so laboriously scripted that Graham Stark's crude direction is like a kindly act of euthanasia. The comic talents involved, harping on their TV personalities with deadly monotony, hardly manage to raise a smile from beginning to end. At a pinch, one might make an exception for Ian Carmichael and Alfie Bass, mildly amusing as a couple of motorists illustrating the sin of pride when they meet bumper-to-bumper in a narrow lane, but it hardly seems worth while.
