When Richard and Kate Michael Craig and Anne Heywood return from their honeymoon, they discover that Kate's father has given them a maid as a wedding gift. The trouble is that the maid has a good portion of the U.S. Navy in the house when they arrive, in a more-or-less wild orgy. Exit maid.

And so it goes, even through a gorgeous French maid Mylene Demongeot who causes more than a mild uproar among the couple's friends. It seems the help is either too bad or too good.
