A lost treasure
16 August 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is a knockoff of THE GRADUATE with pretty decent performances from enthusiastic voyeur Richard Benjamin and his suffering wife Joanna Shimkus. They are a troubled young couple thanks to his Peeping Tom proclivities. Benjamin has a particularly memorable scene with the alluring

Tiffany Bolling, as she stretches out on her bed and "performs" for him.

The look on his face in this highly charged scene is priceless. Bolling, a '70s sexpot if there ever was one, never had a better role.
