definitely a cult 80's nostalgia trip, " ere, can you smell horses"
6 December 2004 | by sonicblooSee all my reviews

Although you probably had to see it first time round to appreciate this superb early 80's Brit-flick(most of the films fans are likely to be in their 40's now)I can still watch this film time after time.

The music and the one-liners are brilliant, "can you smell horses?" every time Toby comes near with his Wild Stallion aftershave, "Has anyone ever told you how pretty you are?" to a suicidal boyfriendless Caroline Quentin in the bathroom scene "No" - "Doesn't surprise me!"

It seems every time I watch it I see someone different who is now famous,(also I never realized til now that Clive Mantle from Casualty played the big biker Bobby Sloane)

I notice that Nick Berry gets star billing on the video cover even though he probably says 2 lines in the whole film, yet the main character Perry Fenwick "Larry" doesn't get a mention. I guess this would change if re-released as he is now on our screens 4 times a week in Eastenders.

"Youths of today" would probably yawn at this film and go off to watch "American Pie",so its probably best left to its fans who were growing up in Britain at the time..........
