CGiii Comment

Courtney is less Bond, more Steptoe, in this scruffy little spy-spoof that is - woefully - threadbare in the 'laugh' department.

The only reason to root this out is for Freddie Jones...he plays - with a fair dollop of gentleman's relish - a stereotypical, predatory screaming queen...

He's hysterical...but, for those of you with over-wrought sensitivities...you will be mortally offended.

Flimsy...and, forgotten for a reason.

The(ir) Blurb...

Gerald Otley, a petty thief and garbage rummager, wakes up one morning, after a drunken night on the town, and finds that he is wanted by the police for murder. And that is only the beginning. While being pursued for a crime he did not commit, he is kidnapped by a group of criminals who suspect him of being involved with double agents. Otley manages to escape, but cannot avoid getting into one near-fatal crisis after another, as police and foreign agents chase after him. It is a wild week of misadventures which Otley will never forget!
