Funny Money (2013)

Henry A. Perkins, a mild mannered accountant, accidentally picks up somebody else’s briefcase containing £2,500,000. Henry assumes it is illicit cash and decides to keep it.

In the meantime, his wife Jean is preparing his birthday dinner and taken by complete surprise when Henry arrives and suggests they emigrate to Barcelona. Guests at the dinner, the befriended couple Vic and Betty Johnson are forced into a game of cat and mouse when two police inspec­tors with very different concerns call at the Perkins’ house. The first detec­tive, Davenport, thinks Henry was soliciting in the men’s room of the local pub. The other, Slater, calls to announce that Henry is dead and was found in the river Thames with bullet holes in his head.

Henry’s inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.
