What do you get when you mix Sugar, Honey and Pepper?
29 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

You get a mix of three different flavors, and that's pretty much what happens with this 3-part Italian comedy which tries three different comedic approaches, one for each story: the first (about a hapless man who gets mistaken for a serial killer) is the "sex comedy", largely due to the presence of Edwige Fenech as a kung-fu newspaper reporter (!). Not great, but funnier (and tamer) than her usual similar fare. The second (about a poor unemployed man who is forced by circumstances to dress up as a woman and work as a housemaid) is the "socially conscious comedy". Taken literally this story is of course stupid, but its absurdity has an underlying sadness to it, and the subject is still topical. The third (about a taxi driver who works by his own rules and gets involved in the kidnapping of a young girl) is the "slapstick comedy". It has some funny parts, but it gets overextended. Overall, if this mix of different styles sounds interesting to you, the film is probably worth a look. (**)
