Major Upton, seedy boss of Rentadick Inc, is surrounded by fellow private detectives of equal incompetence. When his firm is hired to keep watch on an inventor's wife and a secret nerve gas formula, confusion - and deadly gas - is soon in the air. This bawdy British comedy was written by members of the Monty Python team and marked the big-screen debut of the late Richard Beckinsale.
