This time the nondescript ‘plot’ hovers around a phoney matrimonial agency run by the plausible Sidney James and Hattie Jacques, posing as happy man and wife. Their efforts to pair off their unlikely and varied clients lead to riotous misunderstandings, sexy situations, intrigues, double-crossing and a custard-pie finale which is rather too deliberately planned and directed to achieve full comedy effect.
The string of situations, heavily garnished with indigo jokes, are often crazily irrelevant yet somehow manage to fit in with a kind of crazy mad logic.
James (aptly descibed in the film as looking like a dissipated old walnut) gives his usual genial, raffish display. Neat running gag falls to Michael Grady and Valerie Shute as a lovesick young couple who have no dialogue but are seen throughout the film smooching in the most unlikely spots.
