Storyline

Carol (Rebecca Brooke) is a young happily married New Yorker, who enjoys being part of a swinging foursome with her husband and a befriended couple. One day Carol's widowed mother (Jennifer Welles) comes to stay in their house, but she is more on the conservative side and doesn't know about her partner-swapping daughter. Could she ever open up to this sexually open lifestyle? Written by Perception_de_Ambiguity

Quotes

Carole: Mama, why don't you get married again? You're young and pretty...
Jennifer Robinson: But why get married?
Carole: Oh, I don't know. But you like to bake and you like to cook...
Jennifer Robinson: Oh, I don't think I'd ever get married again, even if I found another man. I'd probably just go off and live with him for awhile, as long as it lasted.
Carole: Why shouldn't it last? That sounds cynical.
Jennifer Robinson: Oh, Carole, even nice things don't last.

The greatest film ever made... seriously though
27 July 2007 | by (Basement @ Home) – See all my reviews

This is a typical 70's soft core sex romp in the Russ Meyer genre, though perhaps less outlandish than some of Meyer's work. This film has higher 'production values' than many of it's contemporaries, suggesting a larger budget. It's plot, writing and acting are straight out the B zone, though. Of late, this film has become a mainstay of B movie channels (such as "Drive In Classics") in the 500 channel universe. If soft core is what you are in the mood for, this is as "good" as anything else in the B range. Don't expect Polanski though, Sarno is just Sarno. Nothing more, nothing less. Jennifer Welles performance as the "mother" is perhaps the best of the cast. None of the actors in the film went on to greater fame, unsurprisingly. Confessions of a Young American Housewife is far from the worst example of it's kind. It is watchable, if this is your type of film. 30 years ago, this would have been an avant garde and riske film. You can see more or less the same kind of thing on Showtime/HBO series these days, and in prime time.
