Three couples, a pair of activists, a hit man with a prostate problem and an elegant con man, all have a piece of paradise in the magnificent Costa Del Sol, where the sun is bright, the sea is warm and the clothes are not always necessary.
Britain's cleverest man and leading moral philosopher, Quadruple Professor Adonis Cnut, tackles some of the world's most pressing problems assisted by his slave like butler and a beautiful but mentally unbalanced colleague.
Welcome to Marbella, the original Costa del Sol paradise for the rich and famous and for those wishing they were. It's where the crazy worlds of dreamers, nudists, killers and anti goat hurlers collide to spectacular effect and where trusting your `natural` instincts can have the most amazing results!Written by
Upon greeting a nude Ashley (Craig Kelly), Harvey (David Gant) remarks to him: "I see you're one of Cromwell's boys -- a roundhead [circumcised] as opposed to a cavalier [uncircumcised]." However, mere moments earlier, a full frontal shot of Kelly reveals a generous foreskin. See more »
We are saving him!
Ah, we tried to explain, but... Until a few years ago, the goat was indeed sacrificed. Then there was a demonstration...
Harvey and I were there. Young people came all over Spain, wonderful stuff!
Now the celebration ends with the goat being freed and a piñata full of sweets being thrown down from a great height for the young children.
It's quite lovely!
I suggest you put him back where you found him. He'll be quite safe.

I enjoyed this comedy which had some rather stereotyped but still amusing characters in a fast-paced fairly intelligent Britcom set on the Costa Del Sol in Southern Spain. The film was rather short, but it adds up to a decent, light evening's entertainment, with some decent comedic high spots. A number of familiar & skilled character actors pop up during the film and Rik Mayall & Eddie Webber were good to watch in their respective roles as a slimy estate agent and timeshare victim. It will come as no surprise that both Tom Bell & Mike Reid were perfectly cast as aging gangsters.
The film left me feeling that more could have been developed, however and the film finished a little abruptly. Nonetheless, it's a well scripted and acted comedy of particular interest to anyone who has visited the Costa del Sol. The filmmakers have shown promise here and I hope that their next film fulfills the potential hinted at in "Oh Marbella".
Overall - recommended.
