Trivia

The original release did not include any of Robin Williams' scenes. It was re-released just before Popeye (1980) premiered, with his scenes included, and advertised as "Robin Williams' Movie Debut." See more »

Alternate Versions

All scenes featuring Robin Williams were added to the film sometime after its theatrical premiere, to capitalize on his success in the TV series "Mork & Mindy"). According to British critic Barry Norman however it was Williams' growing fame that caused him to seek to have his scenes in this movie removed. See more »

Awesome last laugh is worth it
14 March 2004 | by paz9See all my reviews

Yeah, the jokes are old and silly, yeah, there's no continuity. But I remember seeing it in a theater, that last 20 minute skit, the longest one, was gut-busting and so hilariously funny that it was worth the wait. I have never cried tears of laughter so hard before or since.

Everything else about the movie is dumb. It is hard to imagine how it was ever financed. I remember the reviews of the time putting it down and calling it a big dirty joke in the poorest taste. Well, yes, every sketch is an unoriginal 5th grade toilet joke. Everyone, except the last. That is a 6th grade toilet joke. But the joke is acted out and drawn out and actually something comparable to a vignette from Woody Allen's "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex", only way funnier, if you can imagine that.
