Storyline

Three young Cockneys take a day off work to meet a foreign movie star at Heathrow airport. She joins them and their taxi driver while she collects some typically British hats. The main rule of the game is to steal a hat from its wearer, so the film is a musical chase around Swinging Sixties London, evading press and police. Written by Mitch Park

Huh?
6 October 2008 | by outnawaySee all my reviews

I saw this movie twenty years ago on TV at 3:00 AM stoned out of my mind with my other stoner friends. This is the strangest piece of 60's crap ever... the plot makes no sense, stoned or not. My only hope was that the old MST-3K show would have picked this one up. There's a lot of really bad gay choreography in it too... the whole thing was filmed outside so they didn't have to make any sets... only really memorable thing was the goofy 60's Carnanby Street clothing, all the pin stripes on the guys and little vinyl stewardess hats on the women... definitely a late night drunk-out-of-your-mind laugh fest.

I'm clean and sober now though...
