Italian comedian and unlikely stud Renzo Montagnini plays a fairly typical comedic role as some kind of professor who has organized a vacation retreat for his colleagues and manages to get embroiled in various sex-related shenanigans involving a sexy colleague (Lili Carati), an unfaithful wife (Cinzia di Ponti) and a saucy maid (Marcella Petrilli).
I like Renzo Montagnini better than his Italian funny-man contemporaries like Lino Banfi or Alvaro Vitali if not nearly as much as the great Lando Buzzanca. Still, I saw this in Italian without even the benefit of Italian subtitles for the deaf and the humor here relies more on dialogue than the more slapstick vehicles associated with Banfi and Vitali (some of those are absolutely insufferable when dubbed into English). I think I missed a lot of the more subtle humor here and no doubt several plot points. It IS pretty funny that Lili Carati apparently plays a female professor since she was barely out of her teens and reportedly a very provincial and naïve girl in real-life, who somehow managed to go from a Miss Italy runner-up to a hardcore porn star in the 80's. She had a body though that would put any woman of any age to shame (and certainly any surgically enhanced porn star). Since she spends half this movie taking showers and the other half driving all the men around her to distraction, she doesn't actually have to believably deliver any scholarly lectures anyway.
Cinzia DiPonti is another former Miss Italy, who might actually be most famous actress in this today because of her minor roles in Lucio Fulci movies like "New York Ripper" and "Manhattan Baby". In Italian sex comedies, however, she was always second banana to someone like Carati, Barbara Bouchet, Carmen Russo, or even the very sexy but completely untalented Sabrina Siani. She is actually a decent actress though. Marcella Petrilli is strictly a third-rate actress who headlined crap like "The Erotic Dreams of Cleopatra", but she is fine in rather third-rate role here. The rest of the male and female cast didn't make much of an impression because they're not particularly funny and I didn't get to see their boobs like I did Carati's, DiPonzi's, Petrilli's and (unfortunately) Montagnini's.
I don't know why I watch things, but if you do too, all I can say of this one is it is pretty typical.
