Storyline

A new judge closes a cheese factory for pollution; its owner, La Noce, bribes a monsignor who points him toward an official who might fix it. La Noce needs leverage and discovers the official's taste for other men's wives. He sends his stuttering assistant, Albertini, to hire a willing woman to pretend to be La Noce's wife. Albertini finds a virginal-looking prostitute with a potty mouth. A train trip from Rome to Sicily has many mix ups, but once in Sicily, maybe La Noce's plan to compromise the official will succeed. All the characters converge: La Noce, his wife, Albertini, the whore, her pimp, the official, his wife, and the official's jealous secretary. What about the cheese? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Giovannona Long-Thigh (1973)

** (out of 4)

A new government minister closes down factory that is leading to all sorts of pollution so a plot is unhatch to try and get him to open it back up. A couple dimwits hire a prostitute (Edwige Fenech) to seduce the man in order to make him change his mind. As with most of these sex-comedies from Italy, this film is full of misses but there are a few hits that actually get a nice laugh. The biggest problem is the problem of all of these types of films have and that's the fact that everyone in them, with the exception always being the lead woman, are complete idiots who are constantly doing dumb things. Some might say this is where the comedy comes from, which would be fair to say but there comes a point where you at least need something serious or at least not so over the top where you feel as if you're watching something being aimed at a child. This movie features all sorts of dumb characters doing dumb things but a few of them are funny. There's a very long sequence on a train where the government guys try to get their plan working but Fenech keeps messing up because she wants someone else. Earlier in the film we get a pretty funny scene of Fenech needing to pretend to be a proper lady but her foul mouth keeps that from happening. These scenes, as well as a pimp duel towards the end, work but this is about it in terms of laughs. The nudity/sex side of things is also pretty low with Fenech only getting naked a couple times but we all know this is better than nothing. As usual, she delivers a charming performance as she could certainly act unlike many of the other sex actresses of her day. In the end this certainly isn't the best the genre has to offer but both director Martino and star Fenech would continue to do these types of films and they quality would eventually go up.
