Exactly What You Would Expect.
Verified purchase
This is obviously a film not for the more cultured cinema purists among you. It is exactly what you would expect from the makers, when and where it was made and by the title. If you therefore know what you are letting yourself in for and don't mind telegraphed jokes, predictable plotting, the casual sexism of the period and a bevvy of buxom beauties in states of undress you'll like this. The performances aren't as disastrous as you might imagine with some decent film actors and actresses earning a pay cheque. The whole film is dated and is merely an extended British sit-com of the time (which the public watched in millions) with after the water-shed sex and nudity added for extra picture house ticket incentive. This film is better than 'Adventures Of A Taxi Driver' and although it will never attract critical acclaim for its value to popular culture is is a decent watch for those who know what to expect.

Scraping the barrel
Verified purchase
If you ever want to have evidence of the depths of sheer rubbish the 70s British cinema sank to look no furher
utter garbage from start to finish the only mystery is how the likes of Jon Pertwee, Suzy Kendal,Liz Fraser,Harry H Corbett,Ian Lavender Adrianne Posta and Willie Rushton were persuaded to appear probably the only work around at the time. avoid!

Great fun
Verified purchase
Great silly entertainment how much fun it was back in the day. Female characters are strong and intelligent sexy and they the ones who rip off the mens trousers as with all the films back then get a lot of flack for no deservedly reasons.
