MV5BODc1ZGQ4YTYtY2RhNS00ZTNiLTkwODUtYWM5NWZhNmE5NmMyL2ltYWdlXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNzc5MjA3OA@@._V1_I don’t know if sadness has overcome me because of the fact that there are no more Confession of a (Window Cleaner (1974), Pop Performer (1975), and From A Holiday Camp (1977)) films to review. I grew quite a liking to the misadventures of our favorite imbecile Timothy Lea (Robin Askwith) and all the schemes his brother in law Sidney (Anthony Booth) come up. For today’s Cheeseball Cinema film, we are looking at Confessions Of A Driving Instructor which sees our favorite duo buy a driving school. In the film however, we immediately find out that they are going to have competition with another school next door in the Truscott school. The school is hoping that Timmy screws up enough that they’ll lose their business, but when the owner Mr. Truscott (Windsor Davies) figures out that they aren’t, he schemes to have Timmy marry his daughter in order to merge and steal the business. Will Timmy fall for it or will the plan fail? The film also stars Sheila White (Oliver!) as Rosie, Liz Fraser (The Avengers) as Mrs. Chalmers, Irene Handl (The Italian Job) as Mrs. Slenderpants, George Layton (Doctor In Charge) as Tony, Maxine Casson (Paul Temple) as Avril Chalmers, Chrissy Iddon (Prince Regent) as Lady Snoodle, Suzy Mandel (Come Play With Me) as Mrs. Hargreaves, and the film was directed by Norman Cohen (The Blue Max). 

image-w856If you have seen one Confessions film then you definitely know what you are getting yourself into every time and that is sexy hi-jinx. Although, it seems our main character has better luck in this film then he has had in previous films, but he still has to deal with the same old situations every time as well including a mother and daughter who both want him. The best is that the main story line is that he is competing against a rival driving school that is looking to take them out which then sort of becomes a sidebar to all of the hi-jinx. This was a post that was supposed to come out a while ago, but I procrastinated because I lost some files to complete it. As soon as I found them, It was time to finally finish the post because this may have been one of the best films in the whole series if you ask me. Yes there is plenty of T&A to satisfy any fan of sex comedies, but it was just a fun film to watch overall. There was a lot of good acting and the story was pretty well structured in my opinion. The film even has the menacing Sean Connery like villain and his very annoying sidekick to boot. I am kind of sad that this is the last film from the whole series that I will get to review as I had fun watch all of Timothy’s misadventures. On a scale of one being close to an A-list Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I am going to give Confessions of a Driving Instructor an 2.6 for a final grade.
