Okay for what it is
21 April 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is one of those goofy 70's British sex comedies in the mode of the popular "Confessions of" or "Adventures of" series where servile, demeaning employment somehow leads a young man to get more scrumptious tail than any young man could possibly handle (which makes you wonder why the real-life workers in Britain were always angry and on strike in the 1970's). The male protagonist here (Jeremy Bulloch) has a gorgeous, generously breasted fiancée (played by the gorgeous, generously breasted Jill Damas from "Sex Play") who refuses to marry him unless he proves he can "keep it up for a week", that is keep a job for a week (get your minds out of the gutter, people). This doesn't seem like all that difficult a task for someone to be considered marriage material, but ironically it results in him cheating on her about a dozen times.

Our hero goes to work for an employment agency called "Here to Service You" and has all manner of misadventures with the invariably horny female clientèle. He meets a libidinous female shrink (played by popular sex star Sue Longhurst), a ditzy housewife in a bathtub with her toe somehow stuck in a drain, three nubile sisters who he "babysits" (and who show him that they're WAY too mature to need a babysitter), and he even gets involved in an interracial three-way with a black nurse and white female doctor in a medical office. The ending involves an incredibly hypocritical double-standard plot twist in which his fiancée is in danger of being seduced into bed by another man (as opposed to say a dozen other men, which would only be fair), and he has to rush to the rescue. But rest assured that whatever happens, the male sex fantasy here is not going to be punctured.

The jokes here generally fall pretty flat, but there's definitely no shortage of crumpet. And that's all you can really expect from a movie like this.
