If you like Sir Les Patterson you will love this and laugh out loud.
Not for everyone, but a must for Humphries fans.
This is definitely one of those movies that fit into the 'so bad they're great' category...and it does that easily. The performances from the entire cast are cringeworthy to say the least, the plot is hysterically awful, and it looks like it cost nothing to make! But...it will have you crying buckets of tears; with laughter...both at the appalling acting, and the genuine funny moments. Buy it!
I searched for years for a widescreen print and i found it. It made the film even more enjoyable, and had the UK ending as an extra which was not the same ending as this version. Good extras too and many happy memories brought back too.
Don't buy the 15 rated UK DVD -- get this version!
There are a few good laughs particularly the early plot-point one whereby the Arab grandee is torched by Sir Les' flatulent flamethrower but a lot of the subsequent scenes fall a little flatter and only the grosser scenes are very funny,if at all...Lots of double meanings and innuendo but this is not Moliere...More a crasser but slightly funnier Carry On Aussieland that ends with somewhat lame farcical contrivance.
It's fun if naturally dated and I bought it because I love the Sir Les character and all that spoils it for me is the appearance of said Sir Les as his trannysexual self,Dame Edna Everidge...So's he can get in touch with his feminine side,no doubt but it's not him at all...Try it,not bad,not belly-laughy and not subtle or discreet but it's not dear,either.
(*'Faeces',Blended with'Featur-ing...Apt in context).
