And John Cleese is a master at the stuffy, but slightly disoriented type he played so well in A Fish Called Wanda, and as the schoolteacher in Life Of Brian. But this movie lacks stronger writing, mainly because of the other "sleuths" played by imitators, which is not funny. The well-known TV and movie detectives, from Charlie Chan to Steve McGarrett, were badly portrayed. A similar un-funny scenario was brought out in Jackie Chan's Fantasy Mission Farce. His diary stolen, he no longer knows where he is or is supposed to be next.

John Cleese, Arthur Lowe, Joss Ackland, Burt Kwouk, Connie Booth & Derrick Griffiths (Doing an amazing Jamaican patois). A dreadful misfire in which John Cleese returns to the role of the Great Detective (following 'Elementary My Dear Watson' for Comedy Playhouse). Lowe is sober for a change, he sadly battled alcoholism in his last few years, and he puts in a fine performance as Watson. I'm sure when this film was at script stage its zenophobia seemed funny, and Arthur Lowe's dolt of a Watson didn't jar as much as he does in the finished product. For completists (Holmes or Python) only.
