Brilliant -- if you can find an uncut copy
12 January 2007 | by (Chicagoland) – See all my reviews

This is the first film to cause me to fall out of my seat, laughing, onto the floor of the theatre. Not hard to laugh out loud at this one if you don't take yourself too seriously -- one of the few soft-core porn flicks that had great bathroom humor as a bonus. Garfield stole the show.

HOWEVER -- hoping to relive the moment 30 years later, I rented a copy from a video store and was severely disappointed to find out all of the great gags I remembered had been cut out, leaving a mess.

So if you rent this one, make sure you get a copy of the original theatre version. The sanitized version stinks.
