Synopsis

Frank O' Reilly is a loanshark, down on his luck as always. After a lifetime wasted pretending to be a gangster, he's got nothing to show for it except a crappy little car and a few darts trophies. He lives in the quaint little seaside town of Bognor Regis and swaggers about like he's some big-time 'face' from London. Everybody regards him as a joke except his impressionable young partner Des. Des is a posh upper middle class kid obsessed with gangster movies and boxing even though his Dad's a Chief Constable in the police and he's so crap at boxing his own cornermen bet against him when he fights.

Then one day O' Reilly and Des get sent to collect twenty grand from an eccentric Indian gambler, Singh. When Singh pays up but then gets hit by a bus as he tries to get it back the two hopeless loansharks sniff the first opportunity they've had in years.

They lie to the man who sent them, Mr Palooka, saying Singh refused to pay up before he got killed. A simple lie and now they can keep the money. What could go wrong?

Well, first, O' Reilly loses all the money when it's stolen by Singh's former girlfriend. And second, Mr Palooka's boss, the dreaded Mr Baxter (known as the 'Hardest Man in Bognor') has decided to blame them for not forcing Singh to pay up and has decreed that his two loansharks have two weeks to come up with the money.

So now our two unlikely heroes have to come up with twenty grand and of course they're well over nineteen grand short. But O'Reilly has a plan.
