Quotes

Joey: There has only been one real problem, and that is food. All other ills have been imaginary. I use to tell Carl so when he complains about being a slave. He uses to say I'm an incurable optimist, but it is not optimism, it's the deep realisation that, even though the world is busy digging its grave there is still time to enjoy life, to be merry, carefree, to work or not to work. It has been a period when cunt was in the air.

A seriously awful film
4 June 2006 | by m-prior-1See all my reviews

If you were there at the time the film makes sense. All of the taboos were there to be broken and this one tried to break them all at once just to prove it could get away with it. So there's naked women everywhere (in poses 'pushing out the envelope' of the day), bad language and lavatorial humour in abundance. My guess is that the producers were so fixated on pushing back the boundaries of the then conventional taste, that even the most the most rudimentary craftsmanship was contemptuously discarded.

So it's a pity that the acting is terrible, wit is noticeable by its absence and the nudes aren't really all that exciting. Some gross outs can be amusing. These ones were not.

With very little effort this could have been so much more fun and put one over on the wicked establishment at the same time.

Watch 'I Am Curious' instead. It's (they're) no great shakes but much better than this.
