For men who dream the sex!
28 November 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Maybe I'll start to appreciate comedy movies after all! This German-made production actually makes a bit of common sense! The movie tells it all, involving two buddies who talk, fuss, and complain about the natural feminist state. It is not a romance like many of the U.S. comedies, but a dramatic and humorous account of the sexual revolution. The proven point is simple: nothing in the world can keep men from being addicted to the opposite sex! I'll admit that it also has one of the silliest, catchiest endings I have ever seen, not to mention the actual crew members showing up on the elevators in the final credits. To add greater sense to the movie is the fact that it was directed by a woman. Sounds like the battle of the sexes all over again! Highly recommended!
