right ... if you like your humour to be vulgar, smutty and toilet then this is the film for you. Make no mistake, barry humphries is a gifted comedien and his characters are genius. There is a joke every 30 seconds, some delivered with jaw dropping audacity and genuinely very funny. I love films of all genres, and can honestly say that this is the best comedy film I have ever seen ( and I've watched it many times ). Utterly unpretentious, good old fashioned down to earth filthy humour. invest...

This is not a subtle film. The humour is in your face and gives the viewer a feel of what Carry On films might have been like if they were being produced in the 1980's. Barry Humphries gives the viewer just what they expect, Sometimes crude, sometimes vulgar, but always typical Humphries humour.

If you like Sir Les Patterson you will love this and laugh out loud.

Not for everyone, but a must for Humphries fans.

barry Humphries is a comic genius, and his character sir les hilarious, great film, if your humour is of the toilet type, in these politically correct times, where some people really need to get a sense of humour, and not take themselves so seriously, barry gives a great performance, and as ever ridicules the political elite , very clever, if you don't find this funny theres no hope,!

Well, for the price what do you expect?!
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!

Many years ago I saw this film on a terrible UK print where only the middle third of the picture was left in a poor quality massacre of what was a letterbox film. I always hated this practice, and when I many years later saw it on a UK DVD, it was the same awful print.

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!

Silly of course, yet endearing. I enjoy seeing the work of Barry Humphries very much. This would not normally appeal to me but in trying to gather all I can of Barry Humphries it is a must look see, despite being very low humor. Thankfully the Dame makes an appearance and puts some taste into tastelessness.

This is one of the funniest films ever. What more can I say, I've watched it loads. It is so full of one liners. Sir Les is just revolting. Just buy it and enjoy.

Sir Les totters onto the UN podium in stack heels that went out in the late seventies in this eighties romp faeceturing* this belated antipodean bozo as a heroic but nonetheless charmless chauvinist boor and boozy loon who stumbles,probably literally,on a plot to destroy Amerika with a vile plague the effects of which are grosser than the ghoulies in the average zombie film...Ghouls more horrible,in fact,than those in the Evil Dead and easily equal to those in Braindead.

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).
