A Run for Your Money

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Released in a vintage Ealing year (Passport to Pimlico, Whisky Galore!, Kind Hearts and Coronets), this comic effort, co-written by the novelist Richard Hughes, seems a bit winded. Edwards and Houston are the Welsh brothers who win a newspaper competition to see their countrymen take on the England rugby team at Twickenham; Guinness is the journo who tags along to do the story on them, and grows anxious as their misadventures take unexpected (but not that unexpected) turns.
