You would be forgiven in thinking that this is a catastrophic comedy - the acting is reminiscent of the silent era - over-pronounced and affected.
Jim and Jules are an unattractive double act who dress identically.....chasing the same woman - the diabolical Catherine - a woman who would make any man turn homosexual for the sake of self-preservation.
Littered with redundant scenes, scored with the most inappropriate music - the overly wordy script is further brutalised by cluttered narration.
The ending is a preposterous climax to a monotonous melodrama that has garnered an inexplicable amount of praise.
