Trivia

Filmed independently in 1973 for Columbia Pictures release, it was shelved by the studio, reportedly due to the "too parochial" nature of its comic content. Thought to be incomplete and unfinished, it reappeared on pay-TV over a decade later, in 1984. See more »

Deadly dull
4 October 1999 | by (Denver, Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

You might be tempted to rent this film because Peter Sellers appears in it. That would be a mistake. This is one of the most pointless films ever made. I kept waiting for something funny to happen, but nothing funny appears in this movie. Even the film industry recognized this was a very weak film and didn't even try to promote it. Its a wonder that it was ever put on video.

I wonder what sort of contract caused Sellers to be in this film. I also wonder why the people responsible for this film were allowed to go on to make other bad films. Surely this film is a waste of the money used to create it, and a waste of anyone's time watching it. Surely there are high school students who would be able to write/produce a film which as a plot.
