An Idiotic Masterpiece
26 April 2002 | by Mad Dog McLaganSee all my reviews

This is one of my favourite films.Eric Idle (Of Monty Python fame) and Robert Wurhl (Probably best known as TV's Arliss) star as a mismatched couple,Wendel and Lou in this mystery-comedy caper.Don't take this seriously!DON'T EVEN TRY!To give you how rididculous the plot is here are some of the characters:a one-handed kingpin,a lawyer who suffers from dwarfism,and twin brothers,one a crazed photographer and the other a mild-mannered antique dealer. One of Wendel's many former foster parents,Mr Hu,dies,and his lawyer (The dwarf) gives Wendel his inheritance.A riddle.Wendel and Lou (His cello-playing best friend) soon realise the riddle isn't Hu's heirloom,just the key to FINDING Wendel's inheritance.But they are pursued by several infavourable characters, almost all of whom want them dead. This film I find side-splitting, but if you don't like slap stick humour there won't be too much value in this for you.
