full frontal JMV
5 August 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

How's that full frontal scene with JMV walking towards the camera! The audience at the cinema that session went absolutely ballistic as they realised has taking it ALL off and was about to display the full monty python! It was an audience of 18 year olds and they were just blown out of their seats, so to speak. Then of course, we all settled down to the awful raping and the usual bashing and walked out crying. A big surprise in its day and a lot of peoples almost favourite teen experience movie. Also a good JMV film and a great memory of 70s cinema. Probably his best along with BIG Wednesday in 1978. Incredible to know JMV is now over 64 years old and not in good health. He was then, and is still so popular and well remembered.
