British/Spanish co-production filmed in Menorca , Balearic Islands , including fun situations , silly roles and far-fetched events
18 May 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Roaring and humorous film with odd characters , surreal imagery and nutty plot . Crazy humor gives way to sexy as well as hilarious happenings , closely followed by embarrassing events that doesn't take long in coming to a head in undisguised pandemonium . It deals with English merchant Mike Scott (Leslie Phillips) complaining to his G.P. (Frank Thornton) about his lack of sexual desire . Mike then goes to Island of Menorca to a shooting session for his lingerie line . There he is received by his photograph assistant Juan (Ramiro Oliveros) and four gorgeous fashion models called Bruce (Andrea Allan) , Francesca (Sally Farmiloe) , Annette (Jaleh Haddah) and the Spanish diva Nadiuska . Then , Mike meets an old school friend, a British aristocrat businessman named Sir Percy de Courcy (Terry-Thomas) who is making a deplorable and poisonous wine to sell tourists and local people (Emiliano Redondo as a barman and Jose Lifante) . Realizing that the wine is undrinkable ,Sir Percy and his helper , loyal chauffeur (Graham Armitage), collect several spices to improve the taste but by accident they add Spanish flies, in the blending , resulting in an aphrodisiac wine . Sir Percy invites Mike and the beautiful fashion models to have dinner and they take wine and obviously takes place a night of passion . However , wine has side negative effects from the use of Spanish Fly ,as they begin barking and behaving like dogs . Then , there shows up Mike's wife (Sue Lloyd) and she also takes wine and the events go wrong .

This an amusing but mediocre picture full of laughters , silly events , embarrassing humor , a lot of lingerie and and some nudity in charge of the three models and the Spanish beauty Nadiuska . This is a full-on surreal Psychotronic sex comedy , it is so excessive and outrageous that blends bemusing deeds , as well as a funny script full of absurd humor , entertainment , and exciting situations . Packed with scenes of absurd nature , this story is a fantastic farce, as we follow the ridiculous situations of a varied group of quirky characters whose destination is dictated by an aphrodisiac wine . As the wine becomes aphrodisiac and all are looking forward to making love but subsequently everyone starts barking like dogs . This main premise about the sexual wine is overspread throughout the movie , but not totally satisfactory , including conventional pitfalls . The narration is so filled with crazy characters , nutty comedy, mixed with surreal elements and an underlying sense of humor . The film works on various levels , however contains some embarrassing , contriving moments and also certain excess . Fine acting by Leslie Phillips as a rogue entrepreneur who lacks sex drive and very amusing , as always , Terry Thomas as a crafty aristocrat who want to have his own fraudulent business for a sexualized wine and at whatever cost . Nice support cast plenty of Spanish actors sch as Ramiro Oliveros , Nadiuska , Emiliano Redondo , Jose Lifante , Marisa Porcel , Sergio Mendizabal as well as British players as Graham Armitage , Frank Thornton and Sue Lloyd .

Atmospheric musical score by Ron Goodwin , including disco music and adding catching songs at the beginning and the end . Colorful cinematography showing splendidly the local beauty , and being filmed on location in Menorca, Cales Fonts , Balearic Islands, Spain . The motion picture was middlingly directed by recently deceased Bob Kellett (1927–2012) . He was a director and producer, known for Are You Being Served? (1977), Up Pompeii (1971) , Up the chastity bell (1971) , Girl stroke girl (1971) , Futtocks End (1970) and this Spanish Fly . Rating : 5 , average but amusing .
