Sunday afternoon popcorn
8 November 2002 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Fairly enjoyable yarn about 2 hitch hiking girls (1 German, 1 French) who catch a ride with a pompous Britisher (June Laverick). Their car runs out of fuel and they wind up pushing it to a service station. The car gets away on them and winds up in the sea. British girl hitch hikes along with her newfound friends for the rest of the movie.

The three girls meet various voice overed Italian gigilos along the way, finally ending up with respective boyfriends/fiance's and they all live happily ever after.

Cinematograpgy is not wasted. The director makes full use of the magnificent panoramic scenery of the Mediterranean.

I wouldn't call the movie a comedy by any stretch, but it's a light hearted, non-serious, easy on the eye look at a group of girls and their travels through Europe of the late 50's.
