Watched this again the other night:

A cracking good yarn.

I can see a couple of clever players getting their PCs into the sorts of situations Peachy and Danny find themselves in and getting out of. If that save vs. drugged bride hadn’t failed, they might have gotten away with it.

I have not read the Kipling story, so I do not know how well the film compares to the original.
