Fritz, now married and with a son, is desperate to escape from the domestic hell he now finds himself in. Lighting up a joint, he begins to dream about his eight other lives, hoping to find one that will provide a pleasant distraction. The drug-induced journeys he takes include spells as an astronaut, Hitler's psychiatrist, a courier travelling in hostile territory during a race war, and as a pupil of an Indian guru living in the sewers of New York.

That cat is back! And it's a whole NEW trip with some fabulous new friends! Among the least of which are HENRY K., ADOLPH HITLER, General GEORGE S. PATTON and the future dictator of the United States (name withheld by popular request) See more »
Follow up to X-rated predecessor is a witty, lively satire of the 1970s, spoofing such topics as war, race, sex, drugs, and child-rearing.
Perverse and off-color, to be sure, with potentially offensive material to certain tastes, but never fails to entertain those with open minds.
Just remember, this film was made in 1974, and it covers socially relevant material pertaining to that time period, NOT the 1990s. So don't watch it expecting to see issues that Americans face today. View it as somewhat of a period piece, and try to imagine yourself in any of Fritz's given scenarios.
**1/2 out of ****.
