A mostly pleasing star farce in which Norman Wisdom - who's so modest that his greatest ambition in life is to become chief filing clerk in a Ministry! - unwittingly tries his hand at international intrigue, as he gets to replace an indisposed British diplomat at a Geneva conference and causes no end of havoc!! There are some nice moments along the way (though there's an overabundance of songs), particularly during the flight to Switzerland, the initial business at the hotel and the climax in a TV studio (notably a running gag involving a French chef), but the subplot involving conflicts over a South Seas island (which Norman somehow ends up representing to the chagrin of his fellow delegates) is rather dreary.
At least, the return of his co-stars from 1953's TROUBLE IN STORE (leading lady Lana Morris and comic foil Jerry Desmonde) elevate this to above medium grade. Belinda Lee also appears as a movie siren, Norman's dream-girl, who also turns up in Geneva but is exposed as a femme fatale involved in the plotting! The bumbling diplomat plot was reprised several times by other film comics, notably Danny Kaye in THE INSPECTOR GENERAL (1949), Terry-Thomas in CARLTON BROWNE OF THE F.O. (1958; co-starring Peter Sellers and also dealing with the fate of an island in the Pacific), etc.
