Storyline

John Smith has been happily involved in a bigamous marriage for five years. He lives with Stephanie in Finsbury and Michelle in Stockwell. Fortunately, for John, he's a taxi driver which involves varying shift work! Simple? Well, when John unwittingly becomes a have-a-go hero and the Finsbury and Stockwell police forces discover something suspicious in their paperwork, John's happy bubble is about to be burst. The action of the movie takes place during the next hectic 24 hours as John, with the assistance of his gullible neighbor Gary, rush between North and South London attempting to thwart the police and prevent the two loving wives coming face to face!

i loved it so there
24 September 2013 | by (coventry) – See all my reviews

Its very "carry on" slap stick and i thought hilarious. I loved to see the whole of the Uk's veteran TV stars back under one roof. Brilliant and well written. I'm very surprised that its got a such a bad rating. Danny was funny as always, Neil was there through it all supporting the whole story. I think the use of the veteran stars was well placed i.e.: Andrew Sachs as a waiter Etc. The stars from Yester - year were great sports to do these rolls whether large or small. Chris Biggins was the campiest i ever seen with "wife!" Lionel Blair. I was loving Denise in her mad potty overprotecting wife role.

The whole thing gets a thumbs up from me, especially if u love "the stars of yestayear "
