For as long as it takes – British Crime Comedy Script

$5.50

Two small time idiot crooks ‘find’ themselves in possession of a cache of Rolex watches. They soon realise, to their horror, that they have ripped off their boss, Mr G. Further stress piles up when they are made aware that the watches are not, as they had assumed, fakes but the real thing. This is after one of them has already sold four of them at the local market for a healthy fifty pounds each, to people including the local policeman’s wife! Mr G, not realising that the idiots working for him are in fact the very same idiots who stole his watches, sets those idiots on the task to track them down. Naturally the two find nothing at all. Well, what else would they say? They then decide to lay low and move away to pursue their dream – running a small seafood restaurant in this British Crime Comedy Script.

Sometime later as Mr G continues to brood over his loss, he has a visit from a fellow, but much nastier, member of the underworld who claims the watches were his and who will go to any lengths to retrieve them. Mr G. (Who still thought they were fakes) find it is his turn to have brown pants. But will they ever find who really stole the already stolen rolex watches?
