Storyline

Sir Roger Moore and Sir Michael Caine play dual roles in this off-beat and highly silly caper, a pair of small time conmen, and a partnership of nuclear physicists. As conmen, they use their uncanny resemblance to the high-living scientists to con their way to the scientists' safe deposit boxes, but in doing so, become entangled in a shady world of spies and international intrigue. Written by Paul Roach <paul.roach@cs.cf.ac.uk>

Trivia

The final scenes had the smallest ever crew on a major movie. Writer and director Michael Winner operated the camera, cameraman David Wynn-Jones held the reflector. John Cleese moonlighted as sound man, but as he was performing at the same time (the sound recorder was concealed in a book he carried), he did not count as crew. See more »

Goofs

Sidney incorrectly pronounces Kim Basinger's last name as "BA-sinjur". The correct pronunciation is "BAY-singer". See more »

Quotes

Willie: Now we've all arrived, let's get down to business.
Lipton: What business?
Willie: Things are tough, Sidney. I'm broke, widowed, and being thrown out of my home. I need my real frieinds.
Lipton: Then why is Gerald here?
Willie: Because I want you two to do a job.
Lipton: I'm not working with that double-crosser. He's put so many partners in jail they've named a wing after him,
Garald Bradley-Smith: You're no master criminal yourself.
Lipton: Yeah, well the closest thing you'll ever get to a brainstorm is a drizzle.
