comedy-mystery-farce passes 90 minutes pleasantly
10 March 2000 | by aromatic-2See all my reviews

This is a quintessential B-movie. Silly, but lots of fun with Sir John cavorting in every disguise imaginable. Despite the clowning, the script takes its mystery roots seriously and those that stay with it will be rewarded by some totally unexpected twists and turns. The critics roasted this one because they missed what the picture was trying to do -- entertain.
