A satire of life in modern Greece, presented through a series of different stories about sex. We see several couples and their relation with sex in parallel stories that come together in a hilarious way as the film progresses.

After their arrival in pita, they soon face a serious problem as a small Turkish ship arrives in the area. What do these intruders really want, and what are these beautiful girls doing with them?

I gave this movie a 7 to keep to my IMDb rating, however, considering current Greek cinema this movie deserves at least a 9! Why?
First of all you can see that a lot of work was put into it, and I suppose a lot of money too (for a Greek movie). Also, the outdoor setting is an advantage (one that I believe we should exploit more in our movies and TV series), as is the international cast.
Secondly, even though the story is nothing special, the script is absolutely hilarious and the cast delivers. The cast consists of current successful TV actors, who are given here an opportunity to shine. I have to especially mention the outstanding performances of Vassilis Haralambopoulos (the scene where he runs from the drunk tourist girls, when he welcomes the pizza guy, and many many more!), Orfeas Avgoustidis as "Survivor" and Ioannis Papazisis, who managed to deliver a completely cliché role in a graceful and very funny way. And usually the role of the gay guy in Greek television is overly simplified and not funny at all. I also enjoyed Yorgos Seitaridis' atrocious English accent! However, casting Vicky Kaya as the main female lead was a mistake. She can't act. She is a model, not an actress. Watching her perform was just torturous.
This is a feel-good, laugh-out-loud movie. I don't think that every movie needs to be deep and thought provoking. Sometimes just having a good laugh is enough!
