Short Review of "Happy Ever After"

This 1954 comedy starts David Niven as a young man who's just come into an inheritance. This includes fulfilling the role of his dear departed relative, and it's not long before he's upset the villagers so much that they're plotting to kill him!

Though this movie definitely has its moments, somehow it never really gets going. It's nice enough but there are very few laugh-out-loud moments. Also stars Yvonne De Carlo and George Cole. If you like fifties comedies you'll probably enjoy this, but it's not exactly a memorable film.
