We first saw it on German TV. We laughed so hard that in the last 10 years we have seen it about 15 times. We are still looking for a copy to purchase.

The Bank employee (a family man) is going to retire early. One of his fellow workers has a sister who is a high priced "call-girl." The employees chip in an decide to give him "her" as a retirement gift without him knowing it. He thinks he is going on a little vacation by himself.

Now that the plot is set, and he just accidently gets in the same booth with the call girl (Clio Goldsmith) and the action starts with this unknowing poor soul.

There is serious comedy as only the French can produce. But they have added a little slapstick (which hurt the rating a little) and a lot of embarrassing situations which end up even more embarrassing. This gives an edge for more comedy and we loved every minute if it.

It is an adult movie with nudity done in good taste and even the women will enjoy watching this one with their husbands.
