Of the cast, three of them were from Monty Python: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, and Eric Idle. Cleese stated that he accepted a role in this movie only as a favor to Graham Chapman, and that he thought the script was the worst that he had ever read. See more »

I raped ya, if that's what you mean.

You would think a movie with this many hilarious actors would be side splittingly funny. You would be wrong. While it's not a bad movie, you would probably not realize that it's a comedy if someone else hadn't told you. It's no surprise that someone who is a huge fan of Cheech & Chong and Nigel Planer has never heard of this until today. If you like those guys or Monty Python you will enjoy this movie. If you want some hard laughs, look elsewhere.
