Cooney, Britain’s master farceur, is at it again. Set in a hospital, It Runs in the Family contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex-wife, a punkish son, and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the ‘Lecture of the Year’ to a hundred of the world’s leading physicians.
