When a rock band at the top of their game suddenly loses their leader, their direction suddenly becomes questionable. All the band members know is that the leader’s clothes were found at the edge of a waterfront and he had not been seen since. To compensate, they hire a new band member that shakes up their thoughts of the band. But the biggest changes come when the band decides to go into seclusion to develop new songs and a new sound. They rent a mansion from an aristocratic couple, who are hard up for money. When the staff hired to be on hand when the band arrives do not show, the couple decides to act as the butler, Benson, and the cook, Margaret. The obvious conflicts between the two cultures occur, but a respect for each other gradually follows. Meanwhile, the band’s recording company is trying to trick them into signing a contract that obligates the music to be as the company requires…

Yes this movie is predictable and definitely not award-material. But then it doesn’t try to be anything it is not. A fun-filled romp with real funny one-liners, a stellar and very funny performance by Peter O’Toole, a grounding and down to earth performance from Joan Plowright. The band’s performance was on the spot, each one playing their role in a deft, comical manner. The music was good though not great but filled out the movie nicely. From some of the negative comments I deduced that the subtlety of some of the humour went over their heads. A good example is the comment about the “strange baseball-like game”, well my dear American, that was cricket -from which baseball is derived- and the explaining of it to the ignorant US band was very funny for those that do know cricket. Also no, you were not supposed to wince when Carl broke a window; it was funny how Lord Foxley said “oh yes!” to get more money for breakage and the manager said at the same time “oh no” also referring to the money. Jeez, it seems that every joke must be explained to some people… All-in-all I enjoyed it and had some great laughs! Well worth seeing.
