Fat middle aged 24/7 drunkard Les Patterson (Barry Humphries) represents Australia at the UN where his fart literally incinerates an Arab ambassador. Patterson is reassigned to the Middle East so he can be tortured to death by the country he insulted. Patterson's arrival disrupts a coup and he is spared. At a bar Patterson meets a bioweapons scientist who's developed a horrific disease for the KGB which plan to distribute it to the Pentagon via toilet seats. Patterson, though far too drunk to understand anything happening, teams up with Dame Edna (also Humphries)to save the world.Written by
A comparison between the DVDs published in the U.K. (2004) and in Germany (2011) shows different endings, apparently the Australian/worldwide Edition and a special version for the USA. The worldwide Edition ends with Sir Les Patterson getting awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. After an eulogy has been held in his favor, Sir Les, drunk like a skunk, staggers to the speaker's platform, looses some pages of his speech, bows down and farts, somebody is lighting up a cigarette and the whole story ends like is had begun. In the U.S. version, a reception is held for Sir Les by Mrs. President at the White House. Surrounded by her guests, she praises her interior designer for redecorating her domicile. Than she excuses herself for seeing the lavatories. Meanwhile the gay designer boasts of his idea of having colored the Blue Salon all in pink and that even appropriate toilet seats have installed at the lavatories this very morning. Getting suspicious about the seats being contaminated, Sir Les rushes into the ladies and comes back with a bewildered, but happy Mrs. President on his arms and the invited crowd applauds. See more »

As a major MST3K fan any film known for being one of the worst movies ever made interests me for laughs.
Take it from an MST3K fan, 'Les Patterson Saves The World' is far too horrible to even laugh at. Every last second is nails on a chalkboard!
The mere fact that it stars Dane Edna as the title character should be enough to scare you off from this film altogether.
The plot: (if you really want to know) revolves around a fat middle aged 24/7 drunkard who represents Australia at the UN where his fart literally incinerates an Arab ambassador.
American President Joan Rivers (that's the name of her character as well, there's another reason to avoid this film, or maybe Rivers counts as several reasons) orders Australia to assign Patterson to the country he's just insulted so they can torture him to death.
Patterson's arrival in the Middle East provides the perfect distraction for a coup and he is spared.
While at a bar Patterson meets a bio weapons scientist who's developed a horrific dieses for the KGB whom plan to distribute it to the Pentagon via toilet seats.
Patterson of course is far too drunk to understand anything happening, (the audience must envy him) and ends up teaming up with Dane Edna.
Do not see 'Les Patterson Saves The World!' Do not see 'Les Patterson Saves The World!' Do not see 'Les Patterson Saves The World!' No matter how bored you are or even if it's part of a drinking game. No amount of alcoholic can dull the pain of 'Les Patterson Saves The World!'
