Entertaining Family FunBy Paul Evans from Hampshire, England , 18 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]An very enjoyable light hearted movie for a rainy day titter.
Alec Guiness is wonderfull as the astute mastermind of a gold bullion robbery and his accomplices, Stanley Holloway, Sid James and Alfie Bass are equally perfectly cast.
We were in stitches watching Stan and Alec as they get dizzy running down the Eiffel tower - great stuff.
Shame about the ending but I'll let you make your own oppinion on that one.

The Big JobBy Emjay69 (327 reviews) from Kidlington, Oxford , 01 Jan 2011Excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed it but...
With the extensive list of funny men taking part in the film it was surprisingly un-funny in places. Lots of good old gags and situations but not as funny as it could have been. But still watch it anyway.
big jobBy a customer from England , 01 Feb 2010Classic British Comedy
GoodBy a customer from Northwood , 06 Oct 2009A good old fashioned black and white film. Thoroughly enjoyed on a Sunday afternoon
Lavender Hill MobBy a customer from Leicester , 22 Sep 2009Quite a funny film, but also very forgettable. Good light entertainment
A forgotton classicBy a customer from Scotland , 17 Apr 2009Alec guiness's early films don't seem to get the recognition they deserve now. This little film is full of character and very cleverly told. My wife and i sat laughing at the most simple but effective scenes (the chase down the Eifel Tower! Great to just be entertained in an old fashioned way.
