Quotes

Man in parking lot: Hey, what's the big idea? This was my parking spot!
Sweeney: I am sorry indeed, dear brother. We have a badly abused copy of "Lady Chatterly's Lover" that is in desperate need of an ink transfusion. I'm sure you'll understand.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are shown in a zany animation sequence. Towards the end, the voice of star Anthony Newley comments on the names being introduced in these credits. He calls the producer "a funny fella" and mispronounces a slew of other names. See more »

As bad as a comedy can get
5 September 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This is one of the UNFUNNIEST comedies I've ever seen. Not only is the humor extremely lame and unenergetic, there aren't that many attempts at humor! The only thing to be said in its favor is that it isn't one of those bad, sex-perverted Canadian films that Canada now makes.

The sequel, "Find The Lady", is just as unfunny, though done with somewhat more energy.
