And you thought Angie Dickinson's "Pepper" Anderson was a good-looking policewoman? Check out what Eurobabe Edwige Fenech brings to the table, in 1981's sexy Italian farce "A Policewoman in New York"! Edwige's fans will be happy to learn that she plays not one but two luscious roles in this picture: Gianna Amicucci, a uniformed policewoman in Rome, AND her spitting image, Pupa, the mistress of a mobster in NYC. Gianna and her doofus sidekick are tasked by the F.B.I. to infiltrate this criminal gang and get the goods on them, so it's off to the Big Apple for the two, in this, the last of the "Policewoman" series. Anyway, this is the type of film that will do anything for a laff, even if it means trotting out fart and urination humor, and nothing seems to be sacred here. Thus, there are jokes at the expense of gays, blacks, Arabs, American Indians and stutterers, and much use of cartoon slapstick. (Indeed, I could almost feel the ghosts of Moe, Larry and Curly smiling down in complete approbation!) Fortunately, the picture IS often quite funny. And our Edwige? More than just a gorgeous face, as her fans know, the gal can really act, and in these farces often proves herself to be a wickedly funny comedienne. This film also gives her a chance to look great while engaging in fisticuffs in an out-of-control airplane, while driving in a high-speed car chase through a rock quarry, and, well, in just about every scene she's in. Edwige buffs may be disappointed to learn that she doesn't appear IN the buff in this film (there's only one brief topless moment), but her sexy, lively and amusing character nonetheless makes the film something truly special. And the sight of Ms. Fenech and a big black mammy type singlehandedly mopping the floor with a rival gang is one you won't soon forget! All in all, a silly movie, but still, sexy fun.
