Critical reception

The Radio Times found it a "disappointing comedy caper...despite the catchy title track from Lulu and the star's stunning array of flowery shirts";[4] whereas Cinedelica wrote "the final minutes are a bit cheesy, but it's still solid entertainment...Certainly one for ITC and Avengers fans - and indeed, anyone who likes a 60s crime caper."[6]
