To smooth the impending sale of their failing haulage business to a pair of European businessmen, Stanley and Norman arrange to complete the signing of the deal in a suite at a smart London hotel. At the request of the new buyers, Kurt and Sven, they even arrange for the services of two 'sophisticated ladies of the night' to help the new owners celebrate once the deal is complete.
But Kurt and Sven have other ideas, and intend to knock down the agreed price at the last minute.
Everything appears to be going smoothly until Norman and Stanley's wives Hilda and Rose arrive unexpectedly at the hotel to wish them luck before heading back home. Things are then thrown into chaos when the escort girls suddenly cancel and Kurt and Sven arrive, mistaking Hilda and Rose as the evening's 'entertainment.'
With the sale of the business at stake, the wives decide to play along - much to the consternation of their husbands - so when the real escort girls arrive due to a change in circumstances, pandemonium ensues and an ever-spiralling series of lies and deceptions keeps everyone on their toes.
