Perfect Friday is a 1970 British crime-comedy film that follows the story of three people who plan an elaborate heist. The film stars Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker, and David Warner in lead roles. The movie, directed by Peter Hall, is set in the swinging sixties of London where things are vibrant, dynamic and full of possibilities. In the film, Ursula Andress plays the role of a wealthy and strikingly beautiful lady named Britt. Britt is married to a boring and conservative financier (T.P. McKenna), who doesn’t have any time for her. Britt knows that she deserves more from life than what her husband has to offer. As a result, when she is propositioned by two daring criminals named Mr. Graham (Stanley Baker) and Mr. Jason (David Warner), she is intrigued.

The two men are employees at the same bank where T.P. McKenna works. They have just come with a plan to rob the bank and need a partner in crime who can be their inside man. They see Britt as the perfect partner in crime because she has access to her husband’s office keys, which they need to access the bank’s vault.

Britt agrees, and the three of them start plotting the perfect bank heist. The plan is simple but audacious - the criminals break into the bank's vault and rob the safe. Then they transport the loot to a secluded location, where they distribute and split the money.

The plot of the film is exciting and keeps the audience hooked, as one can never be sure about what to expect next. All three characters display a range of emotions throughout the film. Britt is initially hesitant about getting involved in the heist scheme but becomes more confident as the plot progresses. Mr. Graham is cunning, ambitious, and thinks several moves ahead. Mr. Jason, on the other hand, is more laid-back and is happy to follow Graham's lead.

The heist does not go as smoothly as planned, and the trio runs into several problems. Things go awry, and they are forced to think on their feet to avoid getting caught by the police.

The performances of the lead actors in the film are exceptional. Ursula Andress’s portrayal of a bored, rich socialite who is looking for adventure is utterly charming. Stanley Baker, as Mr. Graham, brings an air of sophistication to his role, and David Warner's portrayal of the laid-back Mr. Jason adds a fascinating dynamic to the group dynamic.

The film captures the spirit of the 60s, showcasing the cultural ripples that were taking place at the time. The soundtrack, composed by Johnny Pearson, adds an extra layer of depth to the movie. It's cool, sophisticated, and accentuates the mood of the 'mod' generation.

In conclusion, Perfect Friday is an enjoyable film that is sure to have the audience on the edge of their seats. The plot of the movie is original and engaging, and the characters are dynamic and intriguing. The acting performances are top-notch, with Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker, and David Warner delivering exceptional performances that make the film a classic.

Perfect Friday is a 1970 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.4.
