The film was originally slated to be released by Warner Bros. in 1986, but the studio turned it down after Julian Temple's previous film Absolute Beginners (1986) proved less than stellar at the box office. De Laurentiis Entertainment Group (DEG) eventually agreed to distribute it, but the film would eventually be acquired by Vestron Pictures after DEG filed for bankruptcy after filming was complete. Prior to Vestron picking up the film for distribution, other studios including New World Pictures, Nelson Entertainment, MGM, and 20th Century Fox expressed interest in acquiring the film. See more »

There is something about the standard eighties film that is quite unique, they seem more light and fluffy than the films released these days. Even better, they seemed to attract fairly big name stars of that time...This is not a great film, but it is what it is. It's light hearted, funny, has some interesting musical interludes and outrageous costumes and is one of Jim carrey's earlier films. There is not much of a story but the slight premise it is based on is still entertaining. Would recommend to any child of the eighties!
