Very 70's and very English. The Brits love their vicars. And the 70s loved the exploration of sex. Catchy theme song.

There's lots of Monty Python-esque tomfoolery as well. It's a weird films. Especially the sound. It has a dubbed quality to it, almost like it was made in Japan and dubbed in English. Only it's not.

Makes for weird viewing.

Not a lot of nudity despite the cover art and film concept.

The bottom line is this -- I really wanted to like this film. I'm a fan of English humor and Marty Feldman. But in the end, it's not really a good film. It will not deliver any belly laughs.
