Synopsis

At the height of the Sixties, Winner's fast-paced directing style combined with the subversive humour of Clement and La Frenais to produce this popular comedy-thriller. Michael Crawford and Oliver Reed are brothers whose love for practical jokes leads them to keep upping the ante until their next project is to steal the crown jewels – just to show it can be done.

Critics

open_quote Sight gags and underplayed British throwaway gags are interleaved neatly with the growing suspense over whether the guys will succeed. close_quote Variety in 1967


open_quote Oliver Reed is very funny as a weary, wise, heroic-but-modest military man. close_quote Roger Ebert in 1968, Chicago Sun-Times
