Trivia

The original script, titled "Rentasleuth", was written by John Cleese and Graham Chapman. However, the pair left the project and, having seen the finished film, asked for their names to be removed. The film therefore has an "additional material by" credit, but no main screenplay credit. See more »

Oh, honestly ...
19 June 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This woeful 70s comedy was, believe it or not, scripted by some of the Monty Python team. Appalled at the result they removed their names from the credits leaving John Fortune to carry the blame for 'additional dialogue'. 'Rentadick' probably did seem like a good idea but somewhere along the way it went badly wrong.

Funny? No. The cast - ok, stand up Richard Briers, Donald Sinden, Ronald Fraser, James Booth, Kenneth Cope, Spike Milligan, and Richard Beckinsale. All showed a major misjudgement appearing in this rubbish. Don't waste your time - there's little to raise a smile in this pathetic movie.
