Not the worst 70's sex comedy
2 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Dear lovers of seventies tack. Please note that whilst avoiding movies like "Come play with me" "can you keep it up for a week"( and anything else starring Mary Millington or Robin Asquith) probably Will be a great benefit to your health, this nasty little film is far better and at least showcases the talents of Sue Longhurst,the underused but absolutely gorgeous specimen of female beauty that she is. Although she had other rolls(Guffaw Guffaw)in the previously mentioned movies she shines and is almost erotic in this otherwise tawdry effort.I know this is sexist but there's no other reason to see it.The Jack the Ripper subplot and the efforts the main character goes to imprison his intended are shallow examples of the political incorrectness of the time and are really quite appalling. Having said that, thats what D.V.D.s are invented for. Skip the whole movie until Longhurst is naked and appreciate the beauty of the female form.
