The film was theatrically accompanied by Lupert and the Bog Song.
PlotEditDirk and Barry play themselves, searching for the lawn mower stolen from Barry's shed. They search all around Rutland, sing a bit, search Rutland again and sing a bit more before calling the whole search off and going home for a nice cup of tea.

It is believed no one turned up to the premiere, because the cinema was shut that day. Nobody has attempted to review the film as of yet, apart from Melvin Hall, who calls the film "A cinematic masterpiece that will last not quite as long of a lunchtime as that of my documentary on The Rutles, or as a matter of fact The Rutles themselves, but just about long enough."
Dirk believed he could still capitalize on the film by releasing a soundtrack album, which would go on to be released in all good record stores, before being resold in all second hand shops.
