Trivia

For the DVD release, a US print of the film was used. The only difference between this and the UK print is one reference Timmy makes to his "ass" in the American version. In the UK version he says "bum." See more »

Goofs

When Sid Noggett (Anthony Booth) stops his Mini van outside the church at Timmy's wedding, he gets out and comes into the church. Behind him, the van starts to roll away backwards, but in the next shot is stationary. Either it was planned as part of the story that the van would roll away and the story was changed, or Booth forgot to set the handbrake when he stopped the vehicle. See more »

Harmless Fun!!!
6 July 2002 | by (STOCKPORT, England) – See all my reviews

I think this genre of Saucy 70's British film is forever being slated by critics, Yes they are dumb, but they are harmless, the makers of these films did not intend to make groundbreaking cinema, but a funny and saucy alternative to the rest of the films tha country was producing from that era. I say these films are a cult, along with the On the Buses films, and the far more mainstreem Carry On's. I like to watch these films last thing at night, I call them 'bedtime films' you can just switch on after a hard day's graft, and perhaps even switch your brain off to watch them, there is just a fun, cheap thrill element to them, the films have an 18 certificate, due to nudity, but take that away they'd probably be a 'U' due to almost childish humore and very slapstick stuff! When they came out they were probably intended to be sexy, now the hairstyles, the fashions and the women are very funny, although not initially intended to be, these films have got better with age, and hey, I should probably not admit this but I really enjoyed the start of this film with Robin Askwith riding on his bike to a cheesy theme song!
