On its initial release in the UK in 1980, the film was given a AA (over 14) certificate. The producers were unhappy that many younger David Essex fans were prohibited from seeing the movie so a few months later the film was re-released with an A certificate. Some profanity was re dubbed and a few scenes of nudity were removed to achieve the lower rating. See more »
When you think this is over 25 years old it ain't so bad. Sometimes the acting leaves a lot to be desired and some of the locations have you wondering if its U.S. or U.K. but the grand finale is still worth the wait.
I didn't realise there was an alternate ending and I'm disappointed the DVD I bought from Play didn't have both endings not just the one made for the US market.
I won't spoil it too much but I don't think it's really an alternate ending just 5 seconds shorter.
If you're around my age the theme song at the end of the movie will bring back memories and probably get you singing along.
