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 Shadgrind (Cleese) is a tad more adept.
Add to the mix a scandalous, nymphomaniacal Duchess (Hershey), a gorgeous gold digger (Zeta-Jones), plus a host of assorted loonies, and you have a Pythonesque cavalcade of silliness. Can Tommy regain his Dukedom, survive Shadgrind's schemes, avoid being seduced by his own unwitting mother and marry the girl of his dreams?

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
