Richie (Rik Mayall) and Eddie (Adrian Edmondson) are the owners of Guest House Paradiso, a squalid and empty B&B located next to a nuclear power plant. Business isn't exactly booming for the pair of them, but things improve when the Nice family move in - or at least they do until Richie is caught pilfering through their underwear. Meanwhile, fading Italian actress Gina (Hélène Mahieu) books into the hotel to escape her boyfriend Gino (Vincent Cassel). Her presence arouses the lust of Richie and Eddie, but they also have the problems of radioactive fish to contend with.

Richie is soon indulging his passion for panty pilfering whilst desperately trying to impress the fragrant Ms. Carbonara! But with Gina's jilted fiancie in hot pursuit and something decidedly iffy about the fish dinner Richie & Eddie are going to escape in one piece.
