Very funny sequel to The Mouse that Roared (TMTR)
- film lover 293
This film is just as funny, maybe funnier than TMTR. Margaret Rutherford is a joy as the constantly swozzled Grand Duchess Glorianna of Grand Fenwick, the most backward country in Europe. Their Prime Ministers' plan to get indoor plumbing in the castle looks doomed, until Grand Fenwick has an epically bad grape harvest, and their champagne is transformed into nuclear fuel; it's dubbed Pinocchioium 64 by its' only scientist. Director Richard Lester, in his second film, already has a great sense of pace that drives the film past the failed jokes, through the dead spots in the screenplay, and the outrageous overacting (Terry-Thomas is the worst, IMHO) & dismal underacting (the girl who played the heros' boyfriend). Lester powers through it all, with the help of a mostly excellent cast, and ends up with a memorable comedy. Four stars out of five for my overall rating.
Loving Dame Margaret Rutherford B'day Salute
