From the warped and wacky mind of Monty Python alum Eric Idol comes a wickedly funny case of mistaken identity. Idle stars with Rick Moranis, Barbara Hershey and John Cleese in this madcap romp the Los Angeles Times dubbed “irreverent, fun to watch...a killer!” At a wild party during the ‘60s, baby Thomas Henry Butterfly Rainbow Peace (a.k.a. the 15th Duke of Bournemouth) is accidentally “misplaced” by his rich hippie mum and dad. When the wrong baby is claimed, the real heir winds up being raised by a poor Pakistani family, while the “heir apparent” grows up in America with a silver spoon in his mouth. Once Tommy Patel (Idle) learns that he, not Henry Martin (Moranis) is the true Duke of Bournemouth, he’ll do anything to get back what he’s lost! Fortunately for Henry, Tommy’s a pretty inept assassin. Unfortunately for them both, Tommy's seedy lawyer Shad grind (Cleese) is a tad more adept! Add to the mix a scandalous, nymophomaniacal duchess (Hershey), a gorgeous golddigger (Catherine Zeta Jones), plus a host of assorted loonies, and you have a Pythonesque cavalcade of silliness.
