Waiter, Scarper!

Film follows the adventures of a twice-divorced bookseller who is addicted to womanising and struggling to find the resources to support the army of children he has fathered. A case of mistaken identity leads him to hit upon a cunning plan to boost his income: posing as a waiter in the bars and cafes of Prague, taking the customers’ cash and then making a sharp exit. As you would expect, these leads to all kinds of comic hi-jinx.
