Synopsis

Take one television chef, past his sell-by date, add three armed robbers, stir in the police and simmer for three days. Bring to the boil and serve with a dressing of sexual tension and confusion. On screen, Felix Limb appears to be the perfect convivial TV chef. Off screen he is a neurotic with rapidly plummeting ratings and an American wife, Michelle, who seems to do most of the cooking. Tonight he is hosting one of his regular dinner parties for influential guests, and a few old rivals, plus an ambitious nubile PA – Amy. As the dinner party reaches the final course, with a drunken Felix about to come to blows with Bruce, in walk two masked and heavily armed strangers - Simon Cooper had planned to kidnap a bank manager with the help of a mysterious American mercenary, Vaughn. But Simon has written down the wrong address and before he can correct his mistake the police arrive. With the house surrounded, this dinner party is going to last longer than anyone expected.
