John Cleese's ultra-meticulous teacher attempts to reach a head teacher's conference where he, as it's new president, is delivering the keynote speech. Fate and the entire universe seem to be conspiring against him, as what should have been a routine journey becomes a comic nightmare of epic proportions. Cleese at his hysterical best.
