Not very funny but pretty sexy for a British flick
21 May 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This movie is sexist, vaguely misogynistic, and very politically incorrect by today's standards, but there are things I didn't like about it as well. It's basically a series of vignettes with the common theme of gorgeous, predatory females seducing hapless married men. However, with one major exception the men don't end up divorced or in jail or suffer any of the other consequences they would probably face in the real world for doing the things they do. This is definitely a male fantasy above all else.

After a somewhat funny opening involving some pathetic schlub's misfortune with a blow-up sex doll (which is pretty much how all the real women in this movie are regarded, so be warned), an official-looking British narrator takes us into the first story of a young married man who is seduced at his new job by the man-eating secretary (Jane Cardew) first in a cupboard, then in an elevator, then in his boss's office. But what will happen when his wife finds out? In the second story a ruthless gold digger (Maggie Wright) gets her claws in a wealthy, but married, man. After nearly killing them both while initiating him into the "mile-high club" in his private jet, she proceeds to more conventionally wreck his life. The third story is the standard one of a middle-age man being seduced by a "schoolgirl" friend (Felicity Devonshire) of his daughter. He fancies himself a painter, and though he only does still-lifes, she offers to pose for him nude, then mounts him on the sofa.

Unlike some of your better British sex comedies(i.e. the "Carry On" and "Confessions of" series), this is almost never very funny, but it is pretty sexy thanks to the actresses involved. The busty, voluptuous Jane Cardew was in a couple early Pete Walker flicks. The scene when she calls him into the boss' office where he finds her reclining in the office chair in her bra and panties and smoking a cigar is definitely memorable. Felicity Devonshire (who was not REALLY a schoolgirl at the time) was every bit as sexy as the more famous Mary Millington, who she somewhat resembled, and quite a bit better actress. Don't go out of your way to see this, but it's worth seeing if you like 70's British sex comedies (like I kind of do for some reason).
