Storyline

Oliver is in trouble. He's been caught embezzling money from his father's company, and unless he can pay back the $250,000 he took (which he can't), he will be fired from his job, arrested and probably sent to jail. Meanwhile, his rich wife has not only refused to bail him out of this mess, she's planning to divorce him. Desperate, Oliver thinks up a way out. He takes out an insurance policy on his wife with him as the beneficiary, then hires a hit man to kill her. The only problem is that because the doctor who performed the examination is an incompetent fraud, the insurance policy is invalid. Desperate to call off the hit, Oliver tracks down the hit man, only to find that he's subcontracted the killing to another hit man. Tracking down that killer reveals that he, too, has hired it out to a third person, and so on, and so on. Just how many people are trying to kill Oliver's wife?

A 70's comic oddity
2 June 2015 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Oliver is a man in desperate need of money so he decides to have his rich wife killed off. To this end, he hires a man to assassinate her only to later have a change of heart. It turns out, though, that the murder has been sub-contracted downwards via a chain of men, with the price getting cheaper and cheaper. Oliver, therefore, amasses an ever increasing gang of oddballs and eccentrics in his mission to stop the murder he instigated.

This silly screwball comedy stars a man with an impressively silly name, the (surely) one and only Bob Dishy. This is possibly the actual funniest aspect connected to this film though, as despite being a relentless farce, it isn't especially amusing. Its plot ensures that it is quite episodic in nature and this means that it's fairly fast paced which certainly helps a bit. While it isn't exactly a successful comedy, it is strange enough to be worth a viewing. It's sort of like a poor man's Mel Brooks, even if some of Mel Brooks' actual films sometimes seem like poor man's Mel Brooks films themselves. But the sheer daftness on display here is sort of endearing to a certain extent and, on the whole, I sort of didn't mind it all that much.
