British farces work on stage, but usually feel agonisingly stupid on screen. And this is a worst-case scenario, as playwright Cooney adapts his classic 1983 farce without even the slightest adjustment for the cinema.

I appreciate Run For Your Wife is supposed to be dumb, but rarely has a film aimed so low and missed its target so woefully.

It's hard to believe that the play could have warranted a 9-year theatrical run in 1983. I guess the past really is a foreign country. One populated exclusively by toddlers.
