By the way, the 1987 video reissue is the original cut of the film, with the "MAD" Magazine and Alfred E. Neuman references still intact (they were excised in certain prints of the film). One other weird thing is that Ron Liebman wanted his name taken off the film, but the movie isn't THAT bad!

I especially like when she's wearing that haremoutfit, but the part where she takes off her top is really nice (hotcha!).
So, if you want something that's hilarious, bawdy, offensive and just pure cheesy early 80's fun, get this!
