Quotes

[Detective Judd Blake has just caught his assistant peeping at the keyhole.]
Judd Blake: Amateur. Peering through keyholes is for the amateur.
Bob: I wasn't, actually, Mr. Blake. I just thought I'd dropped something on the floor.
Judd Blake: Bugging, now that's the professional way.
Bob: Bugging.
Judd Blake: Yes, and like everything else, purely a matter of technique. Now you stick with me, and you'll soon learn to be a successful bugger.

This is just dreadful for a comedy attempt...the bumbling idiot was pathetic doing his best to create laughs out of terrible situations...if it wasn't for some fairly decent looking women in the cast i likely would have quit viewing after the first five minutes of this disaster...well, i've seen enough to know this is a turkey that should be avoided
