Audience Reviews for Percy

  • Aug 28, 2010
    Considering its silly premise (a man receives the first penis transplant), "Percy" is nowhere near as broad and farcical as one might expect. Edwin (Hywel Bennett, the memorable sociopath of "Twisted Nerve") is walking down the street when a womanizing scoundrel falls on him from an upper window. The unlikely accident kills the man and leaves poor Edwin with a glass-shredded penis. But the daring Dr. Whitbread (Denholm Elliott) has been waiting for a chance to test his innovative graft techniques. Edwin gets the dead man's member. From there, the story heads in a peculiar direction. Rather than dwelling on frothy sex and sniggering jokes (sure, there's a bit of this), the action actually turns rather somber and melancholy. Initially kept in the dark about his new organ's origin, brooding Edwin goes on a quest to find the donor. Ruling out candidates leads to weak gags about race and homosexuality, but he eventually finds the man's cynical widow (Cyd Hayman) and charms his way into her extra room. But somehow the woman rarely slept with her late mate and can't identify his penis on sight. So Edwin presses onward, seeking out the husband's multiple lovers to confirm his adopted part. Naturally, he's also interested in giving it a test drive. But the tabloid media is hot on his trail, and it's just a matter of time before his privacy is grievously violated. Having a disgruntled wife with a thirst for fame doesn't help. "Percy" features a host of stunning women (Hayman, Britt Ekland, Elke Sommer and Antonia Ellis in particular), and music fans will appreciate the classic Kinks score (standout tunes: "God's Children," "Animals in the Zoo") and the screenplay's source (a novel by the father of cult rocker Robyn Hitchcock). Another interesting tidbit: Monty Python's Michael Palin reportedly contributed to the screenplay without credit, which may explain why an early scene inserts arbitrary mentions of a character named Eric Idle.
