The Queen of England has been kidnapped. As " their best man " has been dead for three years - according to Bernard Lee very own M , the British S.I.S. ask the French secret service for help, which comes with four bumbling secret agents, and a cleaning lady who is a perfect match for the Queen. The chase will lead them from Spain to Hong Kong with many broken cars, boats and planes along the way. Along the way various figures from Eon regular 007 film series make an apparition - such as Lois Maxwell or Clifford James...Written by

Among all the poor Charlots movies which were made in the seventies ," Bons Baisers de Hong Kong" is a notch or two above the usual level (which is close to zero,mind you).
It's somewhat better than the "Bidasses" coarse comedies which were probably the nadir of the French cinema of the era.
"Bons Baisers de Hong Kong" was made by Yvan Chiffre ,a stunt man.The film possesses a sense of space and an accelerated tempo helps.
It was intended as a spoof on James Bond flicks ("From Russia with love" French title is "Bons Baisers de Russie" ) complete with M. and Miss Moneypenny who appear in the flesh .As does queen Elizabeth II:but it's only a look-alike!
