What Changed Charley Farthing?

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

This very inevitable adventure comedy, involving the attempts of a group of expatriates to escape from a revolutionary island, shows off with an excess of loveable rascals: McClure as the fun-loving sailor who falls for Hayley's incomprehensible accent; Jeffries as her stepfather, the wily, scheming last outpost of the Empire; and Mitchell as a blaspheming Scot. The only notable points are that the numerous brawls serve as very obvious time-fillers, and that all three men prove fairly game at showing off their buttocks - indeed, McClure can scarcely be induced to keep his trousers on. Wild horses shouldn't drag you to this film, but if they do, you might find Jeffries' desperate mugging sufficient to stave off utter despondency.
