Unfunny innuendo and smut typical of the period - likely for Emery fans only
13 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Charlie Tully and Reggie Peek are confidence tricksters who pull off a big score when they con a rich Italian family out of half a million pounds by pretending to arrange a meeting with the Royal family. At the airport, Charlie can't resist conning a couple of tourists out of £200 but gets caught in the act. While Reggie flees the country with the cash, Charlie gets six months. Reggie puts the money in a Swiss account but, before he can tell Charlie the details, he is killed. Charlie finds that Reggie has tattooed clues on the asses of four girls he slept with in the past few months - and sets off to find them.

With the thinnest of plots (but the most complicated set up) this film allows Emery to wheel out the characters he was famous for in an uniquely British `romp' with heavy smut and innuendo. Needless to say it isn't very clever or funny and it probably requires you to be a fan of Emery's (and even then.). The story is not important but it is way too elaborate for a series of impressions and jokes revolving around girls' *rses! The fact that Charlie has several groups of criminals after him is too complicated considering it is only used to set up a few gags with Charlie's unofficial minders.

I have never been a big fan of Emery - he was before my time and his brand of impressions and innuendo have been done better by others; if you were looking back for an example you likely wouldn't look to him. He does have some talent but the material isn't very sharp and I just wasn't laughing. Ronald Fraser is amusing even if his tattoos looks like a child has put them on with a felt tip pen and the rest of the cast just mug around. I know this film is over 30 years old and body shapes have changed (in terms of what is the media's ideal) but, for a film that focuses on women's bums, it would have been nice if more than 1 of the four actually had a cute one!

Overall this is a very unfunny film that will only appeal to fans of Emery and even then I wonder how good they would think this is. The plot is convoluted for such a silly film and the majority of the supposed laughs are drawn from smut and innuendo that didn't make me laugh.
