Crazy Credits

The phrase "This film is Rated PG" is within the credits at the end before the PG rating tag actually shows after the movie. See more »

Alternate Versions

On older home video and TV versions, the 1953 20th Century Fox "Cinemascope" logo is oddly seen in place of the "then current" logo at the beginning of the movie. And at the end of the end credits, the tag "This film is Rated PG" is seen. Current home video and TV prints restore the "then-current" 20th Century Fox logo at the beginning and removes the "This film is Rated PG" tag at the end of the end credits. See more »

This is a kind of movie that works only because of the chemistry between the two stars
16 February 1999 | by JAGUAR-5See all my reviews

This movie is worth watching because it's easy to see how much fun John and Olivia are having working together. Plus there's Oliver Reed and some simple fun special affects; although the general plot-line is a very overused one.
