Gil (Jeremy Bulloch) and Annette (Jill Damas) are in love, and he wants to marry her ... but she won't say yes unless he manages to get a job and keep it for at least a week. Problem is, Gil is a total klutz, and has no talent whatsoever ... except shagging, as Annette assures him, but that's hardly enough to get him a job, or is it ?

Soon enough, Gil starts working for At Your Service, a company that rents out cleaning personnel, where incidently Annette works as a secretary.

Of course, his klutziness lands Gil in all kinds of (sexual) situations, on the first day he ends up naked in a bathtub with Mrs Hobson (Olivia Munday), the second day, at a doctor's office he misunderstands some opf the orders given to him and ends up having a threeway with the doctor and her patient.

The third day he is working at Doc Bristol (Sue Longhurst), a psychiatrist who wants to test a potion on him that makes him lose all his inhibitkions. The potion works like a charm, and when Annette and her (and Gil's) boss Mr Grimwood (Neil Hallett) come to check up on him, they get a sip of the potion too, until it all culminates in a foursome.

The next job is at a certain Rose, only when Annette finds that out, she decides to do the job herself rather than have Gil tempted by this Rose. But arriving at Rose's place, Annette has to find out that she actually is a very gay Mr.Rose (Richard O'Sullivan), who doesn't mind one bit about female personnel.

Next, Miss Hampton (Valerie Leon) wants Gil's services at a dinner for two, but again, Annette is taken by jealousy and dcides to stop by ... only to be stripped down to her panties due to an accident and having to find out that Miss Hampton is much more interested in naked girls than fully dressed lads (that's right folks, she's a lesbian) ...

Gil's next job is to babysit three teenage girls (Wendy Wax, Sarah Frampton, Stephanie Marrian), who soon enough have Gil undressed and themselves as well ... when once again Annette stops by, and this time she thinks she has caught Gil red-handed (which is essentially not true, since the girls forced him to strip) and wants to blow off the wedding ... but that all depends on if he wins his bet (keeping a job for a week) or not ...

Annette's boss Grimwood shows sympathetic towards her, and plans to employ Gil at one of his swinger parties he regularly holds when his wife is out, where he plans to go to bed with Annette only to make Gil jealous so he makes a scene and Grimwood can fire him fair and square ... at least that's what Grimwood says his plan is - and naively enough, Annette believes it -, actually he just wants to get into her panties ...

But everything turns out not quite as it was planned when Grimwood's wife (Joy Harrington) arrives home unexpectedly, to the swinger party and her hubby in bed with another woman - and all of a sudden it is only Gil who can save the situation - and his girlfriend from her horny boss - and as a result he does not only keep his job, he also gets to marry Annette after all ...

 

Rather weak (and tame) erotic comedy that relies mainly on (badly done) slapstick and situations that are too far-fetched to be actually funny. A few scenes are slightly amusing though, like a running gag about a male and a female streaker, but that's hardly enough to save the film.
