Norman Wisdom plays a 50-something assistant bank manager called Timothy Bartlett whose working life and marriage in London have become lacklustre. On his way to a bankers' conference in Southport, he gives a lift to two fun-loving female students, and has a brief affair with one of them, Nikki (Sally Geeson). He abandons his work responsibilities to have a perfect day with her, taking in all the seaside amusements and recapturing his youthful energy. He tells her he has fallen in love with her and rents a 'love nest' for them, only to find out he was just a two-day novelty for her and she has already moved on to someone her own age. So he invites his wife to join him at the resort and takes her to the places Nikki uses, apparently to show her he's fine without her. They replicate the perfect day he had with Nikki, finding he can have (almost) as much enjoyment with his wife.

There was also a German dubbed version of the film which bears the title Ă–fter Mal Was Junges!!. This version is 27 minutes shorter than the UK version running to 75 minutes instead of 102 minutes. It contains alternate longer versions of the hotel bedroom scenes in which Sally Geeson is topless rather than remaining in her bra as she does in the UK print (which is the generally available version). The text in the opening credits is completely redone in German over the same unfettered film sequence as in the UK version meaning it must have been prepared concurrently.
