Storyline

The priceless Blue Water sapphire is coveted by the heirs of Sir Hector Geste - his new wife, Flavia; his daughter, Isabel; and his adopted twin sons, heroic Beau and pathetic Digby. When Sir Hector takes to his deathbed (where he remains for the duration of the film), Beau absconds with the stone, to keep it from his stepmother. Flavia pursues him to North Africa, dispensing sexual favors to promote her schemes. Written by <rth@ece.arizona.edu>

I thoroughly enjoy this film & found it to be a hilarious surprise.
27 November 2000 | by (Washington State) – See all my reviews

On accident, I picked up this oddly titled movie from the comedy section of my local video store, just hoping for a mildly entertaining flick for my boyfriend and I to sit down for the evening to. Now, it has proved itself to be one of our favorites. Marty Feldman was a great actor and I am continuously searching for more of his work. This movie is at the top of my list right next to The Producers.
