Fast and Loose is a 1954 British comedy film directed by Gordon Parry and starring Stanley Holloway, Kay Kendall and Brian Reece. It was based on A Cuckoo in the Nest by Ben Travers, the first of his Aldwych farces, which had previously been adapted as a 1933 film of the same title.


An unmarried couple are forced to adopt a series of pretexts when they stay at a country inn together with only one spare room.[1]


Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide called the film an "unfunny remake of A Cuckoo in the Nest(1933)." [2]
