Synopsis

In a comfortable middle-class suburb, Samantha is getting ready for her wedding. Unseen, three unsuccessful burglars on the run, led by cockney Pete, hide out in the garden, then mingle with the wedding guests - posing as the photgrapher's assistants. The thieves get caught up in all the family tensions and in the chaos created by the chauffer when he chokes - and dies - on a vol-au-vent.
