This film is a crazy quilt of tongue in cheek vignettes, all spoofing the sexual revolution of the 70's. It is great dirty satire featuring some of the best
improvisational comedians of the era, including Buck Henry and the hilarious
Marshall Efron. Many of the movie's funniest sequences take place at the
Bureau of Sexological Investigation where the head doctor, Alan Abel, instructs his patients on solving a variety of weirdly humorous maladies. There are also real on the street interviews with Abel and an inspired group of people. Throw in a topless string quartet, a pornographic opera, life inside a nudist camp, and a marvelous bit with an X-rated filmmaker, and you have a constant barrage of laughs. The most comical scene is The International Sex Bowl sequence at the end, which remains a classic piece of comedy. Highly recommended.
