Our Score
This example of the British blue-comedy boom of the 1970s is a tatty tale from Stanley Long (who made two other, similarly-titled movies) that presents wife-beating as slapstick. Christopher Neil is singularly unappealing as the titular hero, whose attempts to settle his debts bring him into contact with endless sex-starved women and gangster William Rushton. The promotional material for the film attempted to cash in on Elaine Page's Evita fame (she won the 1978 West End Theatre Award for best performance in a musical) by splashing her name across the poster, though she only plays a barmaid.

Summary

An amorous plumber runs up against assorted crooks and low-lifes while searching for a golden toilet seat. Sex comedy, starring Christopher Neil, Arthur Mullard and Elaine Paige.
