Two jewel thieves unknowingly steal an enormously valuable ruby ring and are in over their heads trying to evade the cops and everyone else. In the same vein as the much-funnier "Nuns on the Run," this caper is done in by bad acting and too much ill-conceived slapstick. Adapted by Donald E. Westlake from his own novel.

The best comedy I have ever seen. Desparately looking to add this to my own private collection but unable to find. Please tell me where I may find it in Capoe Town South Aftrica.
