Writer-director Mark Herman, with his first film, would like to deliver a throwback to the knockabout sex farces of old, but his touch is too heavy-handed and his jokes lack imagination. Full Review
Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
"Blame It on the Bellboy" is a farce in the grand British tradition, set on the Grand Canal of Venice. And that, alas, is pretty much the sum total of what is grand about it. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- It's lowbrow humor for the masses, and as such, it succeeds quite well. Full Review
[A] leaden farce. Full Review
...[A] scenic, fast-paced farce....Effervescent fun...
New York Times
As it bounces unmerrily along, Blame It on the Bellboy is half-intriguing, but rarely humorous. Full Review
...[The cast] is first-rate. Faring best are Brown and especially Wilton, who are allowed an appealing and amusing transformation...
Los Angeles Times
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).
