"You may not fall down on the floor laughing at this movie, but you undoubtly will have a smile on your face the whole time. Idle is a stock broker (or something financial like that, the exact job is sort of skipped over...)who was raised by a family of Hindus, and then finds he was adopted by them and he is the rightful heir to the dukedom belonging to his friend and boss Rick Moranis...The beautiful Barbara Hershey (a blonde here) is Idle's real mother, the even more beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones is Moranis fiancee, (and Idle's one night stand..)in one of her early appearances... and John Cleese is the shifty lawyer who decides to help Idle regain his rightful heritage by killing everyone who stands in the way...(but why does the movie,in the opening credits say "introducing John Cleese"?) Fans of the Monty Python comedy troupe will enjoy it of course, but so will those of us who aren't major fans of theirs... As I said, not a hilarous movie, but one worth watching ...."
The only British Comedy I like

"Most British comedies can only be enjoyed after being drunk on Port. This one is hilarious. Many of the greatest comedy one-liners of all time is in this movie. Renting it, or better yet BUYING it, is a must."
Not the best movie...but still pretty good!

"It was a little dull at some parts but also exciting at others. The comedy's okay, has a nice ending. Catherine Zeta-Jones delivers, as usual!"
