Storyline

Elderly aristocrats Lord Charles and Lady Diana Foxley give their staff - butler Benson and cook Margaret - a one week vacation while the Foxleys visit friends as they have rented out their historic mansion for that week to a multinational corporation. As they are proud people, what no one but the Foxleys are aware of is that they are doing so only because they are in dire financial straits, and desperately need the money to retain their outwardly lavish lifestyle. But when the agency through which they hired the temporary cook and butler for the renters goes bankrupt leaving them with no temporary staff, Lady Diana believes the only way they can get away with this rental plan without incurring a costly penalty or to advertise their financial problems is to act as "Benson" and "Margaret" themselves, much against stuffy Lord Charles' wishes and despite they not knowing how to be domestics. What the Foxleys are unaware of is that the multinational corporation is a front for Global ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When James is driving Nat away from the estate, a vehicle can be seen passing on the left side of the vehicle headed in the opposite direction. Since the setting is supposed to be England, James' vehicle would have been in the left lane and opposing traffic would be on the right. See more »

Peter O'Toole still got it
27 February 2007 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

"Global Heresy" is a British movie directed by American B action movie director Sidney J. Furie and has a plot that doesn't sound interesting, but the film includes something wonderful. No, isn't Alicia Silverstone. It is legendary actor, living legend you could say, 8th times Oscar nominated Peter O'Toole. O'Toole's performance on the film is absolutely brilliant and it's the only reason why I have the DVD and why I still keep watching it.

In some way the whole film is great. Like I said, the plot doesn't sound interesting, but the director and writer have got good performances from actors and writer has made up good jokes, most of them belongs to O'Toole's character.

Direction isn't worth for an Oscar but it's better than you have used to see in this kind of films. Director Furie hasn't made much bad movies but not much great either. This is his best by far.

20 years from today, this film will be remembered because of Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright.

Truly entertaining film.
