The daughter of a wealthy businessman has been kidnapped, and the chief of police, under a lot of pressure to find her as soon as possible, assigns officers Kopek and Broom to track her down and bring her back safe and sound. What nobody on the police force realizes is that the kidnapping was meant to be a fake: the girl's father hired a couple of mafia goons to stage a kidnapping, so that he could use the ransom money to pay off his gambling debts. Unfortunately for him, the hired thugs get the wrong girl. While this should been fairly easy to resolve, the daughter has decided to run off with her boyfriend, after which she actually does get kidnapped by someone else. To add to the complications, a third party is also claiming to be holding her for ransom. Somehow, the bumbling pair of officers has to wade through this mess and find the lady.Written by

I was thinking, sir...
We've got an hour 'till rendezvous, right sir?
That's sixty minutes, right sir?
Can we get a pizza? I'm starving.
No anchovies, Kopek.

Most VHS releases around the world have different running times. The "international" version runs 100 minutes, the uncut version. The Canadian version is six minutes shorter and was released in the U.S. by Continental video in 1985. The public domain VHS releases run an edited 80 minutes, presumably this was an edited for TV print that made its rounds on low-budget VHS copies. See more »
with john candy, mickey rooney and peter cook you wouldn't blame me for hoping something interesting would happen. it didn't. what a mutt!
insipid jokes, terrible music, lousy lighting as well as the cheap and nasty location shoots, all give early indications of where canadian film making was headed. this is the film culture that flowered with "porky's".
don't watch this film. i beg you.
the gong sound everytime the chinese guy enters the room may be the most tasteless bit of the picture, but i don't know. anyone see anything less tasteful in there?
