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 »

Percy drops a stitch ... or two
3 November 2001 | by navelpluisSee all my reviews

The mating season continues with Miss Conception et al. This movie unfortunately suffered severe competition from French Connection 2 and Godfather 2 when it was released. Or did it? Still being WAY better than Porky's (1981), it fits right in with any Troma-movie. There is excessive lavatorial humor and even a toxic disaster. Then some more lavatorial humor. The music is stoopid too. Some might like the looks of Percy, who is probably casted to look like Alain Delon. Or something. My opinion is that Percy has turned into a fascist: doing it for England with carefully selected women ... Sounds like Dr. Strangelove, doesn't it? Rather see part one if you must.

Have we seen percy's last stand? I certainly hope so. You'll regret seeing this, even if you're an Elke Sommer completist. Personally, I watched this because I'm a Denholm Elliot (Trading Places, 1983) and Vincent Price (Roger Corman collaborator) completist. Really.
