When Stimpson sets out upon his journey, however, he finds himself facing a seemingly never-ending series of delays and inconveniences, which range from missing a train to becoming a fugitive from the police. The film goes no deeper than its farcical surface, but is nevertheless consistently entertaining, thanks to former Monty Python member Cleese's precisely tuned transitions from composure to complete collapse.

    A Forgotten Gem

    For anyone who enjoys the humor of John Cleese, this film is a must-see. Granted, Brian Stimpson is yet another incarnation of Nigel Fawltey or the Barrister from 'A Fish Called Wanda' - but this one has considerably more depth than the other two - and has a much wider landscape (half of England, it seems) in which to function. There is also a wonderful cast of supporting characters, all of whom serve either as catalysts or foils to Cleese's ever-increasing freneticism. If I have anything negative to say about the film (and my only reason for 4 vice 5 stars)it is that the inevitable finale, once reached, does not seem to be in proportion to the boulder-down-the-mountain momentum that leads up to it. But this is relatively minor, and when the film is done, you will probably want to hit the play buton again and do it all over. And then get out your old Fawltey Tower episodes and watch them again...
