Rentadick DVD Cover

A rich scientist, Armitage, has problems. Not only is his luscious wife being wooed by all and sundry, but his laboratory is under threat of sabotage to steal his secret nerve gas formula. So he calls upon ‘Rentadick’, a band of private detectives given the job of protecting both his business and his wife. The catalogue of double-dealings and indiscretions that follows is certainly NOT the service he expected!

Written by comedy giants John Cleese and Graham Chapman (Monty Python’s Flying Circus) alongside acclaimed satirists John Fortune and John Wells, Rentadick features James Booth (Zulu), Richard Briers (Ever Decreasing Circles), the gorgeous Julie Ege, Donald Sinden (Never the Twain), Richard Beckinsale (Porridge) and even Spike Milligan as a Customs Officer.
