Alternate Versions

To receive an 'A' certificate the UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove some sex references in Twinky's diary and dialogue mentioning the Pagoda Position. The 1989 video featured the same cut cinema version though both later DVD releases were shorter re-edited prints. The 2001 Delta DVD featured the U.S print (known as "Lola") and the 2006 Orbit release (once again titled "Twinky") restored the original cinema cut scenes. See more »

LONG ON LEG, SHORT ON PLOT DEVELOPMENT
12 May 2004 | by WHLRYDRSee all my reviews

Miniskirt fans, this is for you! It's 1969, and we're watching a precocious Susan George in schoolgirl miniskirts, happily chatting away, burning breakfasts and generally being a teen, while Charles broods, and wanders through this flick, like he doesn't quite know how to handle a chick that's old enough to be his daughter. This is an update on the Lolita theme but has none of the sexual tension of Nabokov. Simply, a great flick if you like to fantasize about hooking up with a babe 20 years younger than you. Unfortunately, the version produced by "Passion Productions" (where did they get THAT name???), is of murky quality; if you find another (even the VHS version has to be better!), buy it. I think a better flick was the one with William Holden. At least he had FUN!
