CGiii Comment

A noisy, overwrought theatrical piece of nonsense.

Wilder had peaked years before he made this re-make of a stage play that did not deserve to be filmed.

As a satire - c'mon, Enid Blyton was more satirical.

There are camp characters and more camp performances but, it all boils down to one thing - nothing that an aspirin wouldn't cure.
