Storyline

When a Paul enters his apartment to find Mary fighting off a swinger who has gotten into the wrong apartement (and thinks that Mary is just playing hard to get) he hits the man with a frying pan, killing him. Their dreams of running a small resturant seem to be in jeopardy until they decide to dispose of the body, keep the wallet, and to advertise for other sexually oriented visitors who are summarily killed, bagged, robbed and disposed of. This goes along quite well until one night a burglar named Raoul breaks in and cuts himself in for a piece of the action. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Murderously Innocent
21 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As we drift further and further from the heyday of swinging (before HIV was a well-known etc.), this movie may lose a bit of its relevance. Still, it will probably remain one of the definitive black comedies of the decade.

The main couple begins and remains sublimely innocent until the end. In a world where everyone is screwing or trying to screw each other, their humble ambition and traditional commitment to each other sets them apart, and makes them actually likable in spite of. . .what they actually do.

It is not really material as to whether the affected characters deserve what they get since rather than real identities, they are portrayed more as individual reflections of a sordid whole. In contrast, our well-defined black heroes endure on to their deserved reward. A must see movie for those who are not satisfied with Jackie Chan humor.
