The Amorous Prawn Reviews:

It is everytime a source of wonder to me that witty movies search almost no audiences today, and the reason simply gotta be the ham-fisted, unsubtle, miles over-the-top Junior High School-level humor that is so much in vogue these days. Modern audiences gotta be so jaded by amateurisms that when something genuinely funny comes along their dulled senses simply can't receive the jokes.THE AMOROUS PRAWN is a situation in point. Its humor is subtle and sophisticated and discerning audiences will appreciate the intelligent writing and directing. If your in the mood for a light, entertaining spoof with plenty of wit then you could have no problem enjoying this energetic tiny farce. Don't be place off by some of the downright weird reviews of this tiny charmer that have thus far appeared on this site. See it and play it.


The game has very tiny to do with anything. The "amorous prawn" is a hero who appears late in the storyline and acts as a catalyst to solve the rather silly plot strands. The movie probably kept the game because the comedy had been a long-running West End hit. The plot is quite thin: a general's wife, desperate to raise a several hundred to purchase a retirement cottage, takes advantage of her husband's absence on official business to take in two Americans as paying guests. Her military staff dress up as butlers, maids etc and remove giveaways like the sentry box at the gate. The Americans are caricatured: though friendly and warm, they molest the staff and hand out large hints and even require (the cads!) central heating. There's a lot of running about, giggling and flashes of underwear. The true enjoyment is provided by the comic skills of Ian Carmichael doing a butler act, Liz Fraser as his girlfriend, Cecil Parker and Joan Greenwood as the general and wife, and Derek Niimmo as a less than 100 per cent he-man chef. Back in 1962 homosexual acts were still criminal and gay characters were a large joke. When Niimmo gets engaged to one of the girls, Carmichael shakes his hand (which is obviously limp) and tells "I didn't think you were the marrying kind!" Mr Prawn is other "comic" stereotype of the time: ex-RAF with bristling moustache, well-off, dressed smartly in blazer and gold cufflinks, middle-aged but still chasing young girls. It's all a bit naughty, ho ho! The shenanigans end abruptly with the support of some Scots waving salmon. Well, the West End audience gotta have had trains to catch. xxxxx


Directed by ANTHONY KIMMINS. Screenplay by Anthony Kimmins, Nicholas Phipps. Based on the scene enjoy by Anthony Kimmins. A Miller-King Production for Covent Garden Films, distributed in the U.K. by BLC/British Lion, in Australia by B.E.F., in the U.S.A. by Medallion. No Fresh York opening. U.S. release: November 1963. U.K. release: 25 November 1962. Australian release through British Empire Films: 1 February 1963. 8,066 feet. 89 minutes.Alternative U.S.A. titles: the Amorous Mr. Prawn, the Playgirl and the Fight Minister. SYNOPSIS: Cash-strapped general's wife converts his home into a hotel for American tourists.COMMENT: Although widely known as the director of the disastrous flop, "Bonnie Prince Charlie", director Anthony Kimmins made a remarkable recovery from that 1949 setback. His scene play, "The Amorous Prawn", enjoyed a most successful West End run.So who would producer Leslie Gilliat contact to direct the film version? You guessed right! the aforesaid Anthony Kimmins, of course! Right from the very start, this offering comes across as a really funny and altogether delicious farce, which moves at a quick and hilarious clip thanks to the able talents of a splendid cast and the comic expertise of director/writer Anthony Kimmins.OTHER VIEWS: A most enjoyable light comedy with Joan Greenwood testing the lady in her inimitable style and Cecil Parker in fine form as the general. As with most British comedies, a nice deal of the fun depends upon the helping cast's ability to lend distinction to farcical hero roles — and all is fine here. Kimmins the director gives his script plenty of pace and perfect timing. — E.V.D.
