Lame. Terry just laughs at every scene and there are a lot pauses.

He does explain the re-edit of the international release because the version released in America was too long. Roger Ebert called it one of the worst films he had ever seen.

Terry mentions that the film failed on release and was panned, but Barry Norman liked it the second time he watched it.

They talk about how the film got a 12 rating on release because of the attempted rape scene in the beginning, which Terry didn't have a problem with.
