Trivia

Geoffrey Bayldon and Imogen Hassall were both named in an early cast list, neither appearing in the final product, presumably being replaced by Richard Wattis and Katya Wyeth. See more »

Goofs

When Sid Noggett (Anthony Booth) stops his Mini van outside the church at Timmy's wedding, he gets out and comes into the church. Behind him, the van starts to roll away backwards, but in the next shot is stationary. Either it was planned as part of the story that the van would roll away and the story was changed, or Booth forgot to set the handbrake when he stopped the vehicle. See more »

Alternate Versions

In order to satisfy the censors of a worldwide market, three versions of this film had to be shot. The 'A' Version was the traditional nude format, the 'B' Version had both male and females wearing underwear, while the 'C' Version (made for South Africa) had fully-clothed sex scenes. The same practice was used for Confessions of a Pop Performer, though the final two sequels - Confessions of a Driving Instructor and Confessions From a Holiday Camp - only required 'A' and 'B' Versions.

This is a great movie
21 January 2006 | by EmmaBurridgeSee all my reviews

Right heres the plot... Young Timmy Lea starts as a window cleaner in the little company of his brother in law Sid. Soon, he learns that some female customers expect additional service. Young and curious as he is, he reluctantly accepts the juicy duty. However his heart belongs to Liz, who demands the highest commitment until she lets him go all the way. I absolutely love this movie. It is a great example of 70s comedy at it's best. Its up there with on the Buses and Carry on. It was the first Confessions film I saw and as soon as I did I had to see the others. I must admit I like them all even though this is my favourite. Yeah, it is x rated, but it really is harmless fun and is great to watch if you feel like a giggle. Robin Askwith is great and really fits into his role as a real jack the lad. I give this film a 10 out of 10 and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of 70' nostalgia.
