Goofs

The couple board a Hastings line narrow bodied DEMU (diesel electric multiple unit) train at Etchingham, bound for London Charing Cross, have sex on a 4-COR EMU which operated between London Waterloo and Portsmouth, and arrive at London Paddington. They say they came from Oakham (in Rutland), so would have come into London St Pancras or London King's Cross. See more »

Apparently the Price Is Right - Come on Down!
2 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

Somewhat interesting cautionary tale(or tail if you prefer) about a young couple leaving the barrenness of their humdrum lives behind in a small English village and going to the big city - a really swinging London in the late 1960s. What they find is that work is hard to come by unless you are really willing to shed your inhibitions and your clothes. While the story probably resonates much of the real-life atmosphere of the culture of that time, the film bogs down really into one sexual scene after another - none of them particularly effective or redeeming in any way. And though the film is considered a black comedy - I think of it really more as a bleak one. I found so little humor in the film. Director Pete Walker - who would go on to do some pretty expressive and decent films of the horror/exploitation genres in the 70s - has obvious skill with the camera. The pace, sets, and dialog are all generally well-conceived for a film of this kind. The two primary acting leads are actually pretty good too as is most of the supporting cast. Watch for Stubby Kaye in a small role! But the end comes on so hard-handed and without warning as to be any bit believable though the film does try to have some moral to this constant parade of sexual encounters surrounding a youngish Carol and her openness to sleep with virtually anyone for a few bob.
