A fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek movie about an engaging foundling.

While Tom remains a lot of fun, he's just not the irreverent Young Turk he seemed three decades ago.

It's a free-wheeling, fast-moving relic from a time when "bawdy" wasn't bad and sex comedies still celebrated sex.

The film is a way-out, walleyed, wonderful exercise in cinema. It is also a social satire written in blood with a broadaxe. It is bawdy as the British were bawdy when a wench had to wear five petticoats to barricade her virtue.

It has sex, Eastmancolor, some prime performers and plenty of action.

Despite the fitful energy and the beauty of the settings, the ugliness of the mise en scene and the crudity of the editing tend to triumph.

Osborne's courageous hatchet job on Fielding's 1,000 page classic novel and Finney's gutsy performance add up to produce an enjoyable piece of irreverent entertainment.

Prepare yourself for what is surely one of the wildest, bawdiest and funniest comedies that a refreshingly agile filmmaker has ever brought to the screen.
