Very funny, I wish I'd seen this long ago.
26 May 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is funny, clean, and although only B/W, one of the best movies I've seen.

The main character, Sid Field plays "Sidcup Buttermeadow", who honestly couldn't find his behind with both hands. He accidentally overthrows Cromwell and his nasty cronies.

If you like the Princess Bride, and don't need gratuitous sex and violence, then see if you can find it or persuade your local TV station to.

Now if only I could find where to buy a copy on VHS/PAL...
