Trivia

On its original USA release, this film was cut by seconds to avoid receiving an "X" rating from the MPAA. This "R"-rated version was also soon seen on home video and premium cable in that country, but in more recent years the uncensored original has turned up on both as "unrated." See more »

Quotes

Jimmy Jordan: I read in the papers yesterday about a man in France who entered a snail eating competition.
[slurps spaghetti]
Jimmy Jordan: He ate a hundred and seventy-eight snails... and then he dropped dead.
Grandpa Bill: [mouth full] Only a Frenchman could die like that. I would rather be shot on my 101st birthday... by a jealous husband.
Martin Jordan: You see, he plans to stay with us another 17 years.
Grandpa Bill: At least!

So weird, so hot
4 March 2012 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

From the director of Sweet Movie and The Coca-Cola Kid, this English-language film is very reminiscent of the latter (which was made four years later). It's just a very odd, quirky comedy. It also contains bits of blistering, hilarious eroticism. It's hard to make eroticism humorous. The film's most memorable bit involves an exotic dancer dodging a remote-control tank armed with a dildo. The story involves a wife (Susan Anspach) who tries to catch up with her husband (Erland Josephson, RIP) as he boards a flight. Unfortunately, she packed garden shears, which gets her taken to a small, back room for searching. There she meets up with a Yugoslavian immigrant, with whom she attempts to catch a ride home. They get sidetracked, though, to a settlement of other Yugoslavian immigrants, where her adventure begins. Meanwhile, Josephson returns home, not knowing what happened to his wife. The film is very airy and enjoyable. It doesn't equal out to much at the end. I'd rank it a ways below The Coca-Cola Kid, but it's well worth checking out.
