John Cleese (Brian Stimpson), Alison Steadman (Gwenda Stimpson), Penelope Wilton (Pat)

A waste of John Cleese. 
He plays an obsessively organised and punctual headmaster who is running late for a conference in the English countryside and faces a road trip from hell with one of his pupils driving him to his destination.
It has occasional moments of comedy but nothing that particularly sticks out. Cleese really deserved better.
