The UK cinema version was cut to receive a '12' certificate by the BBFC with the removal of one use of 'fucking' and to add a warning sign, advising against the dangers of helium inhalation, during the scene where Topper smokes the peace pipe. An additional cut was made for the PG-rated video version to remove references to incest and bestiality from one of Topper's quips, bringing the cuts total to 22 secs. All later DVD releases still feature the heavily cut video print, but the Blu-ray release was passed completely uncut with a '12' rating in 2013. See more »
I watched this movie after watching a really poorly made one, so this film came off like Citizen Kane in many respects. After not watching this film for such a long time, I came into this viewing wit ha more trained eye, and to say the least, it was as good then as it is now. This is easily one of those parody movies that will live forever, especially due to all of the great scenes on the aircraft carriers (dogs chasing the plane, the dancing, etc.). While the film did have its dull moments, there were too many funny moments. Charlie Sheen seemed perfect for this role, simply because it looked like he tackled this movie with a serious purpose. Cary Elwes was also good, considering the stuffy Brit took on the whole comedy role quite well. Kudos to all who had a hand in this film.
