Dick Emery is in all his memorable guises in this film about two con-men who con the Mafia out of a fortune, then must find out which girl has the bank account number on her backside [the number which his dead accomplice Ronald Fraser hid the cash after Emery went to jail for conning US tourists]. The film boasts a great collection scenes for Emery with Ronald Fraser, Derren Nesbitt, Pat Coombs, Cheryl Kennedy, Liza Goddard and Brian Oulton. It is also interesting to see the British cinema come up with a great comedy at the time their own successful generation of comic films was coming to an end.
