“What appeals to me about this is that it is typically British” says Trevor Rudge. “Chaos ensuing all around, reacted to with that stoic ‘Stiff Upper Lip Approach’ by John Cleese and Gabrielle Drake. The emergency is also exaggerated beyond reality. There are some fabulous visuals (look out for the swimming dog) and the fish tank gag is tied in beautifully.”
