Most helpful review
the best of classic British comedyBy Matt Noble from UK , 29 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Henry Palfrey (Ian Carmichael), a loser in love and seemingly in life, takes the train to Yeovil to enrol in the College of Lifemanship, run by Mr Potter (Alastair Sim). Arriving late, Palfrey is forced to wait outside while Potter delivers his speech to the new students, which offers his philosophy in a nutshell: if you're not one up, you're one down. Palfrey takes a number of classes at the College in order to learn 'ploys', to ensure that one is always one up on one's opponent.
Thoroughly good fun.

School for ScoundrelsBy Davidbmh2 (11 reviews) from Stamford , 27 Apr 2009This is a wonderful old film, with great characters and a good plot. Plenty of good humour along the way and some great acting from Terry Thomas, what a CAD! I really recommend this film it's a great piece of social history.
Terry-Thomas CollectionBy a customer from Kirriemuir , 18 Apr 2009predictable but good fun
-------not very good------By a customer from Chatham , 19 Mar 2009I am not a Terry-Thomas lover. This wasn't even on my rental list! Didn't like it!!
ClassicBy a customer from Norwich , 13 Jan 2009These are the films our kids should be watching. Classic, clean comedies, with the Sunday Family Movie feel to them.
With a cast that works together seamlessly, and characters you can easily like, this is a great example of comedy coined in the Sid James era.
