A young woman who's attempting to find her place in the world battles with her controlling mother and a womanizing husband finds comfort and confusion with the appearance of her childhood friend. It is a zappy movie that emphasizes self-actualization. Written by
Writers Anthony Fingleton and Carlos Davis wrote the part of Fred just for Rik Mayall, who even threw in ideas in the script, such as the opening where Elizabeth's mother reads her a bedtime story and Fred sinking the houseboat. See more »

And the prince took the beautiful young girl in his arms and said, will you marry me? Yes, she whispered, I will be your princess.
Did they live happily ever after?
Of course, Elizabeth.

How do you know?
Because she was a good little girl. If she had been naughty, the prince would have run away.
What a pile of shit!

This is a movie that I loved as a kid. I never understood any of the adult parts of the movie of course at a young age. But the movie itself never left my memories and has stayed with me as I've grown up. Now I am going on 26 years old and watching it again. I haven't seen it since I was in elementary school. It brings back so many good memories and was one of my favorite movies as a kid. Now that I'm an adult I understand all the adult parts of the movie which now has a slightly different meaning. But it's still a good movie for kids and for any adult that likes fantasy. Especially adults like me that wish they could go back to being a kid.
