...[The cast] is first-rate. Faring best are Brown and especially Wilton, who are allowed an appealing and amusing transformation...

...[A] scenic, fast-paced farce....Effervescent fun...
New York Times
There's more method than inspired madness to "Blame It on the Bellboy," but this scenic, fast-paced farce by a first-time British director is still effervescent fun.
New York Times
Rating: 2/5 -- An attempt at farce set in Venice and involving three people with similar sounding last names and an Italian bellboy
[A] leaden farce. Full Review
A lightweight ensemble comedy in which ingenious plotting is let down by weak dialog and stop-go direction that largely squanders the talent involved. Full Review
Writer/director Mark Herman does a nice job of setting up the misadventure and then sitting back and letting it play itself out. Full Review
When a daffy bellboy at the Hotel Gabrielli in Venice, Italy, accidentally switches the itinerary envelopes for three hotel guests, he inadvertantly gives them travel plans they'll never forget.
A bumbling bellboy, working at a hotel in Venice, somehow manages to mix up the mail and messages of three of the hotel's guests: a mafia hitman, a timid realtor, and a vacationing lothario who's just set up a blind date with a sexy young woman. Comic hijinks ensue as a tangled and slightly dangerous series of blunders emerge from the three cases of mistaken identity.
- Feature film debut for writer/director Mark Herman.
- Shot in Technicolor.
- One of the film's advertising tag-lines was: "Murder, mistresses, madness and mayhem... It's all part of the service."
- British director Lindsay Anderson does a voice-only cameo, as a character who's heard making threatening phone calls to Melvyn Orton (Dudley Moore).
