Probably the most unusual film of Bronson's career. Shot in London, by "LETHAL WEAPON" director Donner, "TWINKY" is a love story between a 38 years old porn novelist (48 years old Bronson !) and a brit teenager (Susan George). It's a comedy, with nice songs, and Bronson looks like a fish out of the water. He did this film just after "ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST", and it's a huge contrast. It has no aged very well, but we'd like to see a decent DVD of "TWINKY" ("LOLA" in the U.S.), because all the existing editions are awful. Walter Lassally, good director of photography deserves better.

Man, this movie was just awful. Awful! Horrible job by the director Richard Donner and the editing is a mess. It's edited in a way that will make your heart ache, everything goes so fast. I guess it would suit today's young audience, though. I get that it's supposed to be like that but it's not very effective since it ends up just being annoying. Speaking of annoying, so is Susan George's character Twinky, I just want to hit her!
I have no idea what Charlie was thinking with this one. It's easily the worst movie of his I've ever seen.
You make sounds like you're a mean little ass-kicker... only I ain't convinced. You keep talking and I'm gonna take your head off.
