“The 6.5 Special TV series was the in thing to watch when I was a young teenager and now, I look on that series with slight uneasiness, THIS FILM takes it to new heights of toe-curling embarrassment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDear oh dear, oh dear – this is DIRE!!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe only person to come out of this with any credit was Lonnie Donegan, as for the rest – even John Barry trying to look and sing like a hip-cat was laughable and the rest of these so-called pop stars of the day were little better. And who on earth was Desmond Lane? Never heard of him, and then to see teenage girlsu0026#39; mob him as he played his penny whistle takes it to new heights of ridiculousness. I also wonder how we thought a so-called pop band fronted by a man (Don Lang) playing a trombone was with it, is mind numbing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd Iu0026#39;ll completely dismiss the u0026quot;comedyu0026quot; routine by Mike and Bernie Winters as words fail me.”
