My Queen, this pet of yours is difficult for the rest of us to control; there can be no guarantees that something won't... well, go wrong.

UK cinema version was cut by 12 secs to achieve a "PG" rating with edits to a reference to body violation and a closeup of Sonja's face in the opening scene, and a shot of a metal throwing star. The initial 1985 video featured the cut cinema print though all later releases were upgraded to 15 and fully uncut. See more »
This movie gets better with age. If you've got a sense of humor and don't need Industrial Light and Magic special effects, the combination of actors (all playing off the winsome Brigette Nielson) makes this a fun movie to see again...or for the first time.
