On the Beat

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

You may not believe this, but an otherwise totally sensible and widely respected British film director, not altogether unconnected with Time Out's past, has a soft spot for Norman Wisdom. Phooey! The man's humour is of the most cretinous nature imaginable. Here he appears as a dimwit car park attendant at Scotland Yard who sees his dream of becoming a copper like dad come true after he accidentally catches a bunch of crooks. Embarrassingly unfunny, it just shows that being a film comic is a most unsuitable job for a moron.
