Storyline

While in Ireland, a young insurance executive finds out that back at company headquarters, someone else has been promoted to a job that he was hoping to get. Enraged, he writes a scathing--and insulting--letter to his superiors. He soon discovers, however, that the reason he wasn't promoted was that the company is going to promote him to an even more important job with even more money. Frantic, he desperately tries to get the letter back before it gets to his bosses. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Entertaining & Engaging Comedy.
25 March 2008 | by ronevickersSee all my reviews

This is a thoroughly entertaining and engaging comedy which runs along in a lively fashion, and produces energetic performances from all concerned, particularly the likable leads - Pat Boone, Milo O'Shea and Fidelma Murphy. In fact, of the films featuring Pat Boone, this is undoubtedly one of his best, and still stands the test of time. The premise of the story is basic, and the theme of trying to retrieve a wrongly-written letter forms the whole tenor of the film. The fact that it never drags or bores is largely down to the cast and the fast-paced direction. It is set in Dublin and London, and benefits from its location scenes. In fact, it's such an enjoyable film that it's difficult to fathom why, along with Pat Boone's other excellent film "The Yellow Canary," it has never received a release on video or DVD. Recommended to all who appreciate fun films!!
