British sex comedy of the damned! (actually though, its not that bad)
7 May 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

As 70's British sex comedies go this is not nearly as good as "Eskimo Nell", "The Sex Thief", or some of the better "Confession of. ." entries. But it's certainly better than crap like "Sex Ray" and "The Amorous Milkman". A provincial lobster fisherman (Brendan Price) decides to come to London for some reason and winds up in a boardinghouse full of luscious lovelies. One them (Sue Longhurst) is an "actress" who gets him a job with her on a "blue movie" where she proceeds to shag the holy hell out of him for the British version--and then they do the "continental version"! Another of the girls, "Sally Cockburn" (pronounced "Coburn"), comes home to find him occupying her old room and bed, so even though they've never met, she proceeds to strip off and hop into bed with him. Felicity Devonshire meanwhile plays the youngest of the girls, a "17-year-old" who would no doubt succeed in teasing him to death, constantly flouncing around seriously under-dressed and begging him "to make her a woman", if he weren't getting so much sexual release from her "older" housemates.

There's also a repressed religious girl and a nice Jewish girl who gets him a job as a door-to-door salesman at the vacuum-cleaner company where she works, which finally justifies the title. Of course, this also gives him an opportunity to have even MORE sex with various randy housewives (and it gives the script a lot of opportunities to make bad jokes about "sucking" and "blowing"). This whole time though he has fallen in love with a French au pair (Jean Harrison), who he first picks up on the highway wrapped only in a towel after one of HER romantic escapades has gone awry, and he tries to convince her to stay in England. This movie has the kind of "fooled-around-and-fell-in-love" thing going, much more typical of Hollywood sex comedies, where it ultimately tries to move from raunchy to romantic. And like most of its Hollywood ilk, it is not entirely successful.

Still, I always enjoy Sue Longhurst and Felicity Devonshire (they were crumpet, but definitely grade-A crumpet) and Price and most of the other actors are pretty OK. Amazingly, this movie was directed by Wolf Rilla, who years earlier had directed the British horror/sci-fi classic "Village of the Damned". Obviously, HIS career had seen better days. But this is not an entirely embarrassing effort, especially as far as THIS genre goes.
