Don't think the film is sexy or erotic.
A offbeat, bizarre film themed with dark humor and sex which concerns a young man trying to sell his book of stick figure drawings. Enter his obsessions with finding a great 'sex'? partner through a bunch of real and perhaps "not real" sex romps. Since the title suggests a sexy or erotic film with lots of T & A and no doubt that is what these filmmakers actually tried to make.. it isn't. Many "clothed" sex scenes, no real flesh on display and typical, repetitive blanket covered eroticism. Very reserved American style here folks. There are many supposed erotic scenes but it's as if they were all filmed for a PG-13 audience.
Typical of the American filmmaker who tries as he may to make a sexy movie but just kinda, can't. They are often just a tad afraid to show what they really want to and that really comes off in this film quite strongly. As one reviewer points out, it's one film trying to be another. tisk- tisk. I've always thought that American filmmakers who wish to make a sexy film should first consult some European, Japanese or Latin cinema first. At least they can get it done.
Sex Play (1974)
A forgotten sexy classic from the Drive In Days..
Anyone who enjoys 70's retro sex comedies should watch this movie. Director Jack Arnold (who helped co-create the look and feel of the original Brady Bunch TV series) applies similar creativity here but mixes in a bevy of nude ladies, mainly the entire leading female cast. Christina Hart is the lead here along with three other very cute British gals who play a game of sexy espionage with various government officials. There are several sequences in the film where you would in fact think you were watching Brady Bunch rather then a sex comedy but that's what makes it unique. The classic scene here is when Cristina Hart's character suggests they need not where any clothing because it's a girl's school after all and "what's to be modest about?". All four ladies take it all off and strut through the whole house totally nude and out to the pool for a skinny dip. The film has several of these type moments and some genuinely funny scenes. For the longest time this film was very hard to locate on VHS. It's great to see more of these classics on DVD. As campy as these films can be it's a truly unappreciated era in Cinema. This is one of the true forgotten classics of Drive Moivedom. Thanks for bringing it to DVD, Dark Sky Films!
