You Must Be Joking! (1965)

Columbia Pictures
Directed by Michael Winner
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4

Military brass come up with an exercise in "initiative" to decide who among its participants to promote. They send several promising candidates on a scavenger hunt across the country to locate items of cultural significance to England. Madcap antics ensue, some funny, some not so, but its always entertaining. Lionel Jeffries is quite good as a Scotsman who seems to be one step ahead of everyone else, while Michael Callan is irritating as a young, brash American. Terry-Thomas is sadly underutilized.
