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 »

Very 60's style movie/mini skirts abound
21 January 2002 | by dr_salterSee all my reviews

Susan George as Twinky( what a weird name?) is a convincingly vacuous 16 year old British virgin who seduces a 32 year old American writer of pornography (Charlie Bronson). Must be unusual for Bronson cause he never kills or hits anyone. The plot is simple but the whole effect of mini skirts, long legs and blonde hair on Twinky plus the contrast of short black rugged Bronson as Scotty is funny and watchable. Bronson being loving and patient with the annoyingly bouncy playfulness of a 16 year old kid who is 'good in the sex' department is worth the time.
