Elke Sommer...hubba hubba
14 August 2005 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

My rating of 10/10 of course applies only if you're a horny teenage boy. Considering that the movie stars Elke Sommer, I probably don't need to explain the plot (the sexual exploits of a bunch of women). I can also note that Virna Lisi, Monica Vitti and Gina Lollobrigida co-star, and...you know something? Let me explain in the next paragraph.

The skin flicks of the 1960s were cool, but what they should have done in, say, 1966 was make one big movie starring Marcello Mastroianni, Dick Van Dyke, Audrey Hepburn, Steve McQueen, Sean Connery, Buck Henry, Tippi Hedren, Larry Hagman, Robert Reed, Elizabeth Montgomery, Tina Louise, Barbara Eden, Paul Naschy, Sophia Loren, Bob Denver, Connie Hines, Jack Nicholson, Natalie Wood, Elliott Gould, Elke Sommer, Faye Dunaway and Sandra Dee all having a big orgy (if you don't know who some of those people are, then shame on you*). I would have paid to see that kind of movie! *Just kidding! It's probably sort of weird that I know who every one of those individuals is! But I still would have paid to see that kind of movie.
