  • Who, though, would assume rambunctious humor would be served up as well? Dickens meets the Beverly Hillbillies, and the movie is handsome, too. [10 May 1996, p.4D] show more

  • The movie, based on the famous comic novel by Stella Gibbons, is dour, eccentric and very funny, and depends on the British gift for treating madness as good common sense. show more

    Unbelievably terrible..Beckinsale has to be one of the worst actresses I have ever witnessed..It is like she has to work at acting when it should be comfortable. Very poor quality actress.
