When you get a bad British comedy film , they don't come much worse than this inane rubbish with a great title and that's all. The star was a much loved zany DJ and comedy star who died of HIV far to young.Those of you in USA may know Pamela Stephenson as the wife of Comedian Billy Connerly,but the rest of a decent Brit comedy cast are totally wasted. This was part written by a very respected comedy writer and comedian, Barry Cryer, still making us laugh, seen at the beginning as a policeman getting covered in blood.So what went wrong? It was made at a time when sending things up was considered the done thing. The spoofs all go wrong and the whole mess seems to be mistimed,perhaps bad editing. The saddest sight is seeing Vincent Price trying to make good a bad script by addlibbing his lines. He also does not look too well.Kenny is fine and holds in his usual goofy self.I met him a couple of times, a nicer guy you could not meet. So as his film farewell iv'e been kind giving this 5, but that's for him not the dross.
