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!

Laugh out loud for all the family ..
25 March 2014 | by (manchester) – See all my reviews

Gem of a movie...albeit for older movie goers . I'ts based on a successful West End play. The movie is a bit like the Carry On movies. It's great to see so many old British TV and Cinema stars. Many of them were brave to appear on film so late in their careers. And they did this for charity too. It was absolutely delightful to see Judi Dench,Richard Briers, Brian Murphy and Jeffery Palmer to name but a few ! But blink and you will miss most of them...I watched it three times. It helps if you are a fan of UK GOld.Also if you watch Coronation Street and East Enders. All five of us...two men and two women and a twelve year old boy..loved it ! Please remember NO SEE ..NO COMMENT .
