Storyline

Bentzi, Momo, and Yuda'leh are three teenage boys growing up in 1950's Israel, which is not much different from 1950's America if you believe what you see in the film. Of course they are obsessed with one thing - sex. Bentzi is interested in the beautiful Nili, but she prefers his friend Momo. Meanwhile, while Bentzi is working delivering ice to people he comes across a voluptous nympho. For some reason he leaves his job and gets his friends, who are promptly invited inside and divested of their virginity in an explicit softcore sex scene. Momo goes first, then the obese Yuda'leh. Before Bentzi can have his turn the nypho's sailor boyfriend suddenly returns from the sea and chases the boys away, Yuda'leh being forced to run away naked. The boys next visit a prostitute and are serviced by her in turn, the experience causing Bentzi to vomit. With all this experience under his belt Momo seduces Nili and impregnates her. He disowns her when she makes this known to him, leaving it to ... Written by Tim Curtiss <Tim_the_Bald@hotmail.com>

lemon popsicle rocks
2 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

right guys first off I've been watching these films since i was a very small boy,these films especially this first one are all amazing,the soundtracks to most of them are brill,50s and 60s rock n roll tunes playing in the background of an old fashioned coming of age movie.music like bobby vinton,bryan hyland,etc etc,it follows the exploits of 3 friends,benji,huey and ladies man bobby,the plot lines are roughly the same on all films,benji falls in love,then gets hurt,bobby just has a good time,going from girl to girl,and unlucky huey who's always getting picked on,lol,but if your looking for a good old fashioned softcore titillation with an amazing soundtrack,then these films are definitely worth the look.
