Storyline

A mad cap British farce about mistresses and minks in the London fur salon of Bodley, Bodley, and Crouch. Gilbert Bodley plans to sell an expensive mink to a mobster dirt cheap for his wife, because the wife is Gilbert's mistress and he wants to "Close the deal." However, instead of doing his own dirty work, he gets his reluctant partner, Arnold Crouch, to do it for him. Things go awry when the mobster plans to buy it for his OWN mistress and soon the whole plan goes out the window along with women's clothing and a few other things. Mistaken identities, scantily clad women kept hidden in closets, mobsters, suspicious wives, and misguided shoppers keep this comedy trucking along in the spirit of the Marx Brothers' and Noises Off.

Bawdy sexual farce in the Best British Tradition.
28 April 2003 | by (Korea) – See all my reviews

When it comes to stripping beautiful young women down to their underwear for the most gratuitous of reasons, no one can outdo the English. The plot, such as it is, revolves around Leslie Phillips conniving attempts to get Janie McMichael into bed. His plans inevitably go astray, leading to half-naked girls hiding in the closet, jealous husbands raging through the office, and at three of the female cast least losing their clothes in this unmistakably British comedy of errors. Probably the best of Leslie Phillips' seventies bedroom farces, which included "Spanish Fly," "Don't Just lie there, Say Something," "Doctor in Trouble", and the infamous "Not Now Comrade".
