The story is exactly what the title suggests...
27 March 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This one has the dubious honor of being the worst DVD that I possess. In my never ending quest to watch/obtain tons of eurosleaze and trash, I acquired this on the Spanish eBay along with some other movies of a DVD collection called "Clasificada S" and that has some lost gems from Jess Franco, Carlos Aured, Ignacio Iquino, etc.

From the start, I was doubtful about the flick – I mean; this is called "The Plumber, His Wife… And Other Thing to Put Inside"!!! Ferchrissakes! Anyway I was disposed to give it a go – I had already seen other films from director Carlos Aured: the nasty as hell "Apocalipsis Sexual", also produced in 1981, which is very interesting and "El Retorno DE Walpurgis" ("Curse of the Devil"), which is great.

The main letdown is that the story is exactly what the title suggests – this is a comedy about a plumber (Ricardo Diaz) who, after finding is wife (Montserrat Prous) in bed with his best mate, engages in a series of sexual encounters with about all the oh-so-lonely housewives and other women that required his services. Indeed, calling it a comedy is a bit of a stretch – because it simply is not funny and as one can see, we're talking about some serious lack of imagination here. Plus, the acting is stiff as a lead pipe – Ricardo Diaz a serious candidate for man-statue of 1981.

Of course, the all thing is very sleazy. Alias, with this kind of scenario this is not much more than a porno movie (except for the fact that it's not actual XXX porn – hardcore pornography was illegal in Spain at the time), the argument being only a poor excuse for the sexual performances. Well, if it wasn't for the lowest imaginable humorous tone maybe the movie would be better but this is probably a matter of taste, as I do prefer exploitation movies with a dark or psychedelic stint to them – I was never a fan of the Italian erotic comedies that this emulates. Anyway, some scenes are quite hot – lesbians, group sex with a bunch of hippie girls and the ones with Lina Romay being (as expected) the best, as she gives herself wholly. She plays the plumber's best friend's wife – can you smell a revenge plot here?

MOVIE: 1,5 out of 5 for Substance /// 2 out of 5 for Style.
