A lonely 'Stay-at-Home' Housewife is being watched every night through the bathroom window by a 'Peeping Tom', who is being put up to it by his friend. She eventually finds out and gets her revenge on them.
GAMES THAT LOVERS PLAY is a tawdry entry in the '70s world of British sex cinema, where on-screen copulation and copious nudity were often the order of the day. This one's actually a tame movie notably only for featuring a couple of fictional characters (Lady Chatterley and Fanny Hill) teaming up and for an early appearance from Joanna Lumley who does disrobe briefly for the part.
The plot is some piece of trivial nonsense involving the two main characters taking on bets over who can seduce the most unlikely of targets. Thus we see the attractive young women going around trying to get priests and old men and the like. The comedy, if it's here, is unnoticeable, and the acting is poor indeed, aside from Lumley who shows promise even at this stage of her career. Writer/director Malcolm Leigh also helmed the documentary feature LEGEND OF THE WITCHES.
