Businessman Sidney Hopcroft hopes to impress his bank manager and architect friends by hosting a festive drinks party. But he hadn't counted on his house-proud wife Jane causing comical mayhem. It's a party to be remembered but for all the wrong reasons! More comic chaos ensues at each of the next two Christmas bashes as the other two couples take their turn at playing host.
