In this British comedy, a mild mannered editorial writer for a right-wing newspaper becomes fed up with the constant badgering of his domineering, self-righteous editor. The writer decides that there is more to life than kow-towing to his supervisor, and so sets off looking for fun and adventure. He really goes over the edge after he is insulted by a lowly soda jerk. This leads the milquetoast writer and his good friend to go on a Bacchanalian spree filled with gambling, drinking, and even involvement with the underworld.
