Disappointing stuff from Martino and Fenech!
21 August 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Don't Play with Tigers is an example of the sex comedy anthology that was popular in Italy around the mid seventies. Director Sergio Martino actually made one of the best of these films in 1976 with the excellent Sex with a Smile; but as was the case with his eighties Giallo entry The Scorpion with Two Tails, Martino has not lived up his earlier successes with this film. The most disappointing element of it is the way that the great Edwige Fenech is used; she only appears in one segment of the film and is not even the main character. There was a similar situation in Sex with a Smile; but that one had stronger stories. This film features three stories that are all rather weak and don't feature any sex. The first revolves around a man who takes his family to a beach hut; only for their privacy to be invaded by nudists. This plot is actually fairly decent, although a long way from brilliant, and is unfortunately the film's high point. The second story is about a man who is married but has his head turned by a sexy German woman...with no amusing results. The third and final tale is the weakest of the bunch despite featuring Edwige Fenech and revolves around a deal with a sheik. The film is surrounded by a courtroom wraparound story; and like the stories that stem from it, this is not very interesting either. Overall, Don't Play with Tigers is difficult to find and not worth looking for. Die hard Edwige fanatics only!
