Storyline

A young American painter and his French wife move with their small daughter to the US when the husband's father dies. His mother takes an instant dislike to the wife, and when she finds out that her daughter-in-law is a nudist who once posed naked for an artist, she declares her son's wife to be an unfit mother and sets out to break up the marriage--which may not be difficult to do, as the son is a weak-willed "mama's boy" who's terrified to stand up against his domineering mother.

Naked Soap Opera
15 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This had to be one of the most overblown melodramas in the history of the cinema. The film basically is a soap opera with nudity thrown in as filler. It reminded me very much of every soap opera I have ever seen in my life, but the only difference here is the fact that the character of Yvonne is the typical soap opera heroine who is fighting not only her mother in law, but her reputation as most soap heroines do. Bob is the typical mama's boy as he is forced to divorce Yvonne just because his mommy doesn't like her. And the mother in law makes Endorra from Bewitched look like a sweetheart. Also, the nudist scenes only act as filler to help push the story along, and it definitely needs as much pushing as it can because the scenes away from the camp as well are some of the most excruciating to sit through. In fact the scenes inside the courtroom wouldn't even make a good episode of Divorce Court. This definitely is one of those films that aren't even bad enough to be called funny.
