Made in the same vein as Eric Sykes' "The Plank," this film was made with very little money. Stark was able to line up this impressive cast because he was best friends with Peter Sellers. The actors did the film as a favour and didn't recieve any fee. It really is a spot-the-star-blink-and-you-will-miss-them feature. Michael Caine appears fleetingly in his recently purchased Rolls-Royce convertible. Much of the film is banal prank slapstick, but the scene with Peter Sellers scratching his Lamborghini and clicking his fingers for a new replacement is quite amusing, and a reflection of what Sellers was like in real life. Not shown much these days (I saw it at 3am in the morning), it is an interesting film for star spotters.
