Farce about a British diplomat to a West Indian island nation who finds his idyllic existance thrown into chaos when a large American drilling company finds a huge source of natural mineral water there.Written by

The fictional island name of Cascara, which contained a wellspring of mineral water with a "slight laxative effect" was somewhat of a spoof, as the plant Cascara, (whose scientific name is "Rhamnus purshiana"), is said to produce its own laxative effects. See more »

This is one of the most entertaining "lost movies" ever made. The wit, humor, sarcasm, dialogue are what entertainment is all about. The plot lines in the film are well interrelated ... there is the Politics within the United Kingdom, the "then" threat of communism and Cuba, the motivated French mercenaries ... there is the greedy business theme with the evil Spenco (headed by none other than Herman Munster (Fred Gwyne) ... and the religious theme with the questionable behavior of the spiritual leader of the island.
My favorite line is the description of how England must view Cascara as the dot above the "i" in the word "sh*t". With the exception to some very direct references to smoking marijuana and some sexual inuendo ... this is a great movie for almost everyone. It is a little history lesson for everyone who can't remember the Falklands - and its a reminder of the early/mid 1980's for the rest of us.
