A British comedy starring Monty Python's Graham Chapman as an insurance executive who wants to die, so he hires handy man Jason to murder him. Chapman has a change of heart, but because he has instructed Jason not to listen to anything he says, the odd job man plans to carry out the murder

anyway. The rest of the film has Chapman trying to find a way out of his predicament. One chase scene comes after another, with Chapman meeting a wide range of strange characters: a racist caretaker, a gay underworld boss, and a swarm of constables. Finally Chapman and his wife, Quick, thinking

they're safe, fall off the terrace of their apartment, which had been booby-trapped by Jason earlier.
