Seven segments related to one another only in that they all purport to be based on sections of the book by David Reuben. The segments range from "Do Aphrodisiacs Work?" in which a court jester gives an aphrodisiac to the Queen and is, in the end, beheaded to "What Happens During Ejaculation?" in which we watch 'control central' during a successful seduction.

At the end of the fourth segment the transvestite man's wife exclaims: "The look on their faces when the police removed your hat!" and the man laughs in response. But it was actually the man himself who had removed his hat on being recognized by his wife. See more »
The different skits in this move, directed by the great Woody Allen, aren't all funny, but sometimes you have to go through stupid stuff to get to the funny material. The movie opens with a pretty funny skit, but after that, most of the other skits fall flat. Then the sketch with the mad scientist and the giant breast is pretty funny. But then... The last fifteen minutes of this movie are like a masterpiece of science fiction and comedy. The "What Happens During Ejaculation?" sketch is one of the best scenes in the history of film. The creativity, the actors, and the Woodster as the neurotic sperm, are great. The sperm acting like they're paratroopers preparing for battle is hilarious! The sets are spectacular and would set the ground work for the Woodster's next science fiction movie "Sleeper". I give the movie as a whole **1/2. The end of the film: ****!
