Critic Reviews for The Final Test

All Critics (2)

A pleasant, although sometimes faltering, comedy from Britain...Robert Morley is very funny as a spluttery intellectual who takes the boy in hand.

This is a delightful film, a simple friendly film full of national jokes which, as no other country could possibly share them, give one the comfortable relaxed feeling of being at home and liking it there.
