This is a feather-light English comedy. I found it interesting for its unabashed escapism. It was clearly targeting a British movie-goer weary of WWII and all its tragedy and deprivations, longing to look at a world without bombings, rationing, etc. The characters drive cars without worrying about how much fuel they use; they have plenty to eat; they can sail to the Mediterranean without fear of U-Boats; they can grow flowers in their gardens instead of the vegetables of "Victory Gardens." The film is flimsy, but the yearnings it was made to address are touching.
