Synopsis

This is a wild and wacky comedy about the hopeless H.I McDunnough - a criminal who marries Edwina, a policewoman. When they discover they can't have children, they decide to kidnap one of a set of newborn quintuplets - because Edwina believes that anyone with five children won't miss one. Unsurprisingly, things don't end there, as everyone from a pair of dozy escaped prisoners to a spooky Hell's Angel get involved in the mayhem. A fine example of slapstick comedy with some inspired silliness here - but there's a touchingly human side to the story too.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
