The UK theatrical version was cut for a PG rating by 2 minutes 11 seconds:
[Reel 2] During discussion in prison on space ship and in cage after landing remove references to men being castrated.
When heroes are on conveyor belt remove threats of castration and repeated sight of snapping jaws.
[Reel 3] After alien creature bites heroes, remove reference to it as "Space Herpe" when Jason reads cargo manifest.
Remove sight of man's head falling off after woman slices sword across man's neck in fight in bar.
[Reel 4] Remove reference to Space Herpe after it emerges from hunk of meat.
After talking head delivers up ring on tongue, remove it asking, "Want to make a deposit?"
[Reel 5] Establish only lovemaking between Jason and Princess after they go to the passion chamber with back projection, removing all sex double entendres in their dialogue and implication of oral sex.
This movie is generally underrated, which may be because people expected it to be something it's not. It's a comedy, a spoof, and an excellent one. It is not a serious sci-fi action adventure.
Who knew Robert Urich could be this funny? The scene where the captured ice pirates are being prepared for slave duty alone is worth the price of admission!
Then there's the robot that was purchased for an inexplicably good price. That particular scene is so dark that it may be necessary to play it back a couple of times to see what's going on.
You find a beautiful woman in suspended animation. What would you do?
The biggest shortcoming of this film is the ending, where there's a rather silly chase through a wormhole or some such. It doesn't really work, and since it's right at the end of the film may help explain why so many review the film so poorly.
