Mr. Brian Stimpson ran his lifeand everyone elsesby the clock. Then one day at 2:09 and 43 seconds... the clock decided to strike back! Comedy legend John Cleese (A Fish Called Wanda, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) stars as the compulsively punctual headmaster of a British high school in this hilarious comedy hit written by Michael Frayn (Noises Off). On the day Stimpson is to give a major speech at a posh teachers conference, he finds himself in a frantic cross-country chase filled with missed trains, confused cops, strange monks, odd old ladies and stolen clothes. Can Stimpson make up for precious lost time or is the entire world conspiring to make him late for the most important appointment of his life?
