Alternate Versions

The U.S version of the film (retitled "It's Not The Size That Counts") featured additional footage shot by the distributors. These included an opening scene showing a penis transplant operation and a brief scene where a dwarf leaps out of a woman's bed (she then says the film's U.S title). The dwarf was played by Luis De Jesus who was more infamously known for playing Ralphus in Bloodsucking Freaks. See more »

Fun
27 April 2007 | by credikiSee all my reviews

If you like British humor, then this movie is just plain fun. Check it out on a rainy Sunday afternoon. If you like, "Carry on" movies or "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machine's, then it might be for you. It's a typical British cheeky,sexy farce.OK it does't have the production values of the great 60's flicks, but it's still great fun. Check out the cast, Vincent Price, Barry Humphries (aka Dame Edna), Judy Greeson. A guy goes to sea and drinks nothing but champaign for a year, meanwhile the entire earths water supply is contaminated.Every guy on the planet can't, ya know. Except this guy, and off we go from there. Kinda reminds me of "The Cave Gap" in Dr.Strangelove
