“Hormone” Harry Douglas , the American Ambassador to Great Britain, tells his wife, Lois, that he has arranged a golf outing in Scotland for the weekend. She in turn tells him that she too will be gone for the weekend at a spa and that their daughter, Debbie, will be gone visiting a girlfriend. Each then tells Perkins, their newly hired butler, of their plans. He stoically watches as each of them leave for the weekend.
So, where’s the farce? Harry, secretly returns to the empty house, having planned a romantic rendezvous with a sexy, next-door neighbor Marianne. This is no ordinary rendezvous as they plan to act out their fantasies, she a French maid and Harry as Tarzan. Debbie returns with her boyfriend Joe, believing they have the house to themselves for the whole weekend. Harry’s secretary, Faye Baker, and Captain South of the U.S. Marine Corps arrive in the wake of a bomb threat at the embassy, and must set-up communications in Harry’s country home. Captain South places a squad of marines around the perimeter, and everybody is sealed in.
