The Jokers  [DVD]Michael Crawford (actor)
Oliver Reed (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 95 min
"The Jokers" is a light-hearted romp, with Michael Crawford and Oliver Reed well cast as brothers who attempt to steal the Crown Jewels just for the heck of it. It's a quintessential Swinging London movie, full of nice locations and ever-so-British attitudes.
The Dick Clement/Ian La Frenais screenplay was virtually director-proof and was entrusted to Michael Winner, who certainly does a decent job of it, making it seem regrettable that he ever veered away from comedy. There's also splendid support from Harry Andrews, James Donald and Michael Hordern.
