How tragically inconvenient!

A near identical version exists for TV broadcast that replaces all the strong profanity (such as the F word) with milder swear words such as 'bloody'. Closer examination shows that these scenes do not appear dubbed indicating that during filming some scenes were specially filmed again using the milder language. This version was broadcast on ITV in the UK in the 1990s and as this film was co-financed by an ITV network (LWT) this would appear to indicate that these changes were planned well in advance with television screenings in mind.

But I didn't. Watching it again 23 years after release ( omg where did that time go ! ) -
I loved the book and the film is good at matching the general rule of not being as good as the book. But this time I've watched it with the book as a distant memory and I have to say I enjoyed the film .
OK things look a bit dated and the 80s fashion looks laughable but that just adds to the humour . My only disappointment and wish is that they made the remaining WILT books into films too .
The casting of Smith & Jones into the lead male roles is genius and Alison Steadman plays the overbearing wife to a 't' . Watch it with LOW expectations and you'll enjoy it :) -Pad.A
