An accident prone man keeps losing his job, so his girlfriend sets up a bet:
If he can hold down a job for a week she'll marry him (See you didn't expect that from the title did you?), if not he has to make like Donald Duck and streak through Buckingham Palace without any pants!
Seems like a pretty easy task if you ask me, his fit girlfriend obviously not the brightest spark... But wait... Because remember when I said he was an accident prone oaf? Well, unfortunately because of this curse he's only any good at one thing...
However, undeterred he gets a job with an agency which provides 'helping hands', and as a result he has to rely on his only natural talent to keep his customers happy, which means he falls into sexual misadventures as a result...
This was brilliant! Like a poor man's 'Confessions of...' but with more T&A.
Jeremy Bulloch (the bloke who played Edward of Wickham in Robin of Sherwood) is the Robin Askwith stand in, with other notable stars being Richard O'Sullivan (completely camping it up as a predatory homosexual!) and Valerie Leon (about the only woman to keep her clothes on in this! - Dammit Val, not again!)..
Loads of silly orgies and infidelity. With nobody giving a monkey's that they are all at it with one another, especially the hero's fiancee, who rather than being somewhat angry at his goofy frolics, just nonchalantly laughs it off in a 'Oh well, I suppose I deserve it, after all it was my idea.' kind of way!
The script is like one long double entendre with loads of hot stunnahs (Jill Damas, Sally Harrison, Sue Longhurst, Venicia Day) running about with no pants on!! Oh yeah and Jenny Cox with a Frankenstein's Monster of a fringe that makes her reminiscent of Dave Hill from Slade!!
Needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed this and reckon it's one to watch.
The Jezebel dvd print was pretty good.
4.5/5 for what it is..
