Eddie and Joan Booth live next door to Bill and Barbie Reynolds. Whilst Joan and Barbie are best friends as well as neighbours, Bill and Eddie are complete opposites in all things, including colour. Unbeknown to their husbands Joan and Barbie enter a Love Thy Neighbour competition to win a cruise, but are unsure how to get around the problem of their antagonistic husbands. To add to the problems Joan's Mother In Law is coming to stay, and Barbie has her Father In Law Coming from Trinidad. What will Bill and Eddie do when they realise their parents get on? [1]



  • The film was popular at the box office, being ranked the 15th most popular movie of the year in England.[2]
  • Britmovie wrote, "this dated, politically incorrect tale of bigotries and one-upmanship is sprinkled with ignorant comments and insults that are frequently more laughable than offensive when viewed today." [3]
