What I should have expected.
Verified purchase
Not a good film. But, what did I expect? I suppose I thought I should watch one of these films because I remember as a youth the posters being outside our local cinema's advertising these 'adult' films and as schoolboys we joked salaciously, like men of the world, about them. Remember this was the time of Dick Emery, Love Thy Neighbour, and Man About The House on prime-time television.

So, I think, having not seen one of these films and as it starred the respectable actress Judy Geeson I thought I'd give it a chance. It is almost exactly what someone who used to watch these films when they came out expected (and what, I presume, they still do). I say nearly because the humour is worse in that the scenes are so predictable they might as well have arrows in flashing neon pointing it's direction. All the ladies except Ms Geeson and Adtianne Posta show their tits and sometimes their bum exactly when you expect them to and quite delightful they are if it wasn't for the tedium that gets you to the point of unveiling.

Barry Evans struggles though it all gamefully.. Judy Geeson and Robert Lindsay turn up and show glimpses of the character players they can be. Liz Fraser gives a great cameo and the girls including the tragic actress Angela Scoular all take the money and do what is required. Diana Dors just about turns up and takes the money. All are working against a decrepit, cliched and monotonous script and pedestrian direction.

A film to watch to see how the golden age of British comedy came to a sticky (ooh... er…missus!) end, to witness a moment in time and to see some faces who went on to better things earning a crust in their early days. To be honest these are al the reasons that mean I might even watch another 'Adventures' film. Maybe they are addictive.

Humour from a time long past
Verified purchase
There isn't really much to say about this film or its "prequels" other than it is a 70's British sex comedy. There are plenty of soft porn scenes and much of the humour is centred around this and, largely, misses the mark. The cast is actually rather good from a comedy perspective and has many stars from British sitcoms and films such as Diana Dors, Liz Fraser, Brian Wilde, Stephen Lewis etc but the writing is very weak and the jokes are few and far between.

If you are at a loss for something to watch and want something to while away 90 minutes or so then this might be worth a watch but there are plenty of better offerings out there which you would be better advised to view. Even the British sitcom films from the same era are far superior to these. Try Steptoe and son, Porridge The Movie, George and Mildred or Dad's Army The Movie, you'll get far more laughs from those feature length sitcoms than you will from the Adventures Of films.

Saucy
Verified purchase
Just watched on Prime Video with Mr Random, who's older than me and enjoys bathing in the seductive glow of 1970s soft porn. It's well worth watching for the poor script, odd soundtrack and achingly odd asides to camera. Fans of classic British cinema and TV will be able to recognise quite a few of the cast.

Not good film and bad copy
Verified purchase
I bought this because I mixed it up with another film. This is a poor film and a poor copy, probably from an old video tape.
