Kipps is a complete loser.
20 December 2000 | by dottee-2See all my reviews

Arthur Kipps is an incredible one dimensional boob and nitwit. I found the character totally unbelievable and quickly lost my patience and interest. The story line is basically an embellishment on the theme that a fool and his money are soon parted. Very unimaginative and predictable. It probably worked a lot better on the stage.
