Explores adultery and jealous fantasies, the end of innocence, the moral and spiritual conflicts of a priest and a nun in love. The stories define the exploration of women and the cultural upheaval of the early 70s.
Of course, this one doesn't rise to the former hit, this time around, sees Alvin take a weird and interesting change of story. In the early part, we have Abigail, a café/store/servo worker, teasing us and Alvin with her goodies. She was to become Alvin's wife, a different character in the follow up, Melvin, son of Alvin. Here Alvin and his best friend, (Finney) who still can't get around, how woman are all so attracted to his buddy, get inadvertently mixed up with mobsters, with Alvin doubling as a crime boss, taking the place of dead gangster, Ball's Mcgee. He too hate missing out on Skippy. That's Oz respect for ya. All the usual type actors appear here, who we see in a lot of Tim Burstall's stuff, it's almost a revolving door of performers. Before Alvin lands in all this mess, he and his mate, share house with a female cricket team, led by the late great Penny Hackforth Jones, where he's in over his head in young poontang. Exhausted, he gets his mate to take over, one big woman mistakenly ending up with him. When she leaves, clothes and hair disheveled, her smile of appease is priceless. This is still enjoyable as the first, and I must say, it's different direction of story, worked with a lot of interesting moments. Blundell can show his acting capabilities, but he's not an actor, you could really brag about. Of course, this film wasn't meant to surpass it's predecessor. Alvin too shows us at the start, which the movie, doesn't let you forget it's raunchy intentions, how being a sex magnet can affect his job stability.
