Quadruple Professor Adonis Cnut (Rik Mayall), the cleverest man in Britain (possibly the World), is irresistible to women, consulted by governments and paid large amounts of money for his appearances on TV and Radio shows. But he is bored. he needs new and exciting new challenges to service his mighty mind. His first is to fill a vacant seat at 'The Council for International Progress' - a shadowy, underground organisation that controls and manipulates everything that goes on in the world. The second is to get Dr Hannah Awkward (Emily Bruni), the only woman capable of resisting him, into bed. Through all Adonis' challenges, he is accompanied by his faithful manservant (Michael Maloney). He is hopelessly devoted to A Cnut and lives for him and him alone.
