A member of the English upper class dies, leaving his estate and his business to an American, whom he thinks is his son who was lost as a baby and then found again. An Englishman who thinks he is an Indian comes to believe that he is actually the heir. He comes to hate the American who is his boss, his friend, and the man who has stolen the woman after whom he lusts.Written by

At the 1 hour, one minute mark of the film, Patel falls from a window shutter and lands on a poolside lounger, which rolls into the swimming pool. You can clearly see the attached cable, the Crew used to pull the lounger into the pool. See more »
...the clever title suggests a better pastime in lieu of viewing this film.
One would hope for more humour and less depression from a motion picture written by and starring Eric Idle. Other than an interesting score by Michael Kamen, the only reason to view this movie is for the always gorgeous, absolutely fabulous Catherine Zeta-Jones. At age 23, she shines in this early role as the sassy, money hungry, love interest of Rick Moranis(!). Her beauty and grace almost saves this film from absolute terror (and yes, on a whole this film is more 'scary' than "The Haunting.")
