KIRKUS REVIEW

...but it isn't worth the trip. Thursday, whose first appearance (1967) was far than refreshing, returns with his adopted family of cupboard mice and more pedestrian pratfalls. He and Harris (now sporting a wooden leg because of that unsuccessful moon shot) build a charabanc and take the Cupboardosities on a Kent holiday but a gang of transparent smugglers almost does them in. Baron Munchen engineers a lot of it, with ze same offensive accent and ze speech that out of order is, and Big Jim is a bigwig villain in the dated black tie (and tail) tradition. A lesser mousetrap.
