What fun!
25 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this many years ago on CINEMAX under the title: The Joy of Flying. It was typical of these outstanding bedroom farces that the Europeans were so adept at in the 1970s and VERY early 1980s. It is a lovely little comedy and I absolutely ADORE this film. The stunning transsexual AJITA Wilson is in it and there is a SIZZLING scene at her villa and I don't wish to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen this film. There are laughs galore and non-stop fun and one just FEELS GOOD after watching this film. Why isn't it available on DVD or VHS? It is a pity that so many settle for the utterly unfunny "adult comedies" that FILL the rental stores as well as the DVD/VHS retailers' shelves.

If anyone of influence reads this PLEASE invest in reissuing this little gem.
