The opening credits are shown in a zany animation sequence. Towards the end, the voice of star Anthony Newley comments on the names being introduced in these credits. He calls the producer "a funny fella" and mispronounces a slew of other names. See more »
A completely ridiculous movie with a ridiculous plot. Enjoy the scenery....
I borrowed it from work where we test TVs and yes, the movie isn't the greatest but does have one merit: It is a time capsule. The thing that got me was a lot of the seventies culture and life style in the movie is there, like the old pulse dial telephones, the old vehicles, like the yellow beatle, and the VW minibus. Oh, and there's the stubbies! Those old bear bottles, before bear bottles where what I know them to be today. That is what I watched the movie for.
Lame plot, yes, for sure, but it also had a very young John Candy (May he rest in peace) in it as well, and that says something for sure. This movie should be kept for time capsule reasons, and should also be kept as an example of what a poor movie looks like: Something film school students should watch for sure.
