About "Funny Money"
Never has this master of farce been frenetically funnier!
Henry A. Perkins, a mild mannered C.P.A, accidently picks up the
wrong briefcase one full of money. Henry assumes it is illicit cash
and he decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have
his briefcase, he rushes home to book one way fares to Barcelona.
He tells his confused wife to leave everything behind; if she
doesn't like Barcelona, they can go to Bali. In fact, they can buy
Bali! The doorbell rings as they wait for their taxi. The police
detective at the door thinks Henry was soliciting in the men's room
of the local pub actually, he was sitting in the loo counting the
cash. The bell rings again. Another detective arrives thinking
Henry is dead; a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry's
briefcase were found in the Thames. Henry's inept attempts to
extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to
increasingly hysterical situations.
