Guess who will be sleeping with me tonight?
6 October 2010 | by Hans-56See all my reviews

The movie tells us the story of a Herrenhaus (villa) in the beautiful countryside of Germany. For 500 years is has had a reputation: the nobility owning the house love sex. The two daughters show us the reputation is justified. But then the youngest daughter comes back from a two year period spent in a boarding school. And she turns out to be a virgin! This could seriously damage the reputation of the house and its family, so drastic measures are taken to end this dangerous situation. Luckily the house is frequented by a teacher of the violin and a student of art history. And then there is the chauffeur...

This is one of the many sex comedies made in Germany by the end of the 1960's up to the beginning of the 1980's. These comedies are all rooted in the German Heimat-genre. This one is quite early, which means a lot of nude German Dirndles, but no real sex scenes, not even simulated ones. The jokes are all outdated now, for during the time this movie was produced the Europeans were dealing with the dark age of the 1950's. Most jokes refer to this period and many are not funny at all these days. A butler, Herr Martin, is thrown in to deliver commentary and one liners, but alas, Martin Jenke is not a great actor and most of his commentary is quite lame. And to top of all the fun your classical homosexual is thrown in as well, who passionately loves the girls. Luckily this movie has Ingrid Steeger, one of the most beautiful Dirndles, to spice things up a bit.

Actually there isn't much of a story. And what story there is, is only used to make us laugh or show us naked girls. The pace is quite slow and the music is... dreadful. The song used for the opening title, which translates as "Guess who will be sleeping with me tonight?" (also the title of this movie) runs for almost five minutes during the opening titles. Tedious. It is frequently used again during the film, but in an instrumental version. The song itself is typical of 1969 in Germany: the text is quite risqué, but the music itself clearly points back to the 1950's or so.

The acting is above the genre's average. And so is the direction. Downsides are the slow pace and the many outdated jokes. If you like the German Lederhose movies, or enjoyed the Report movies, you might try this one. Most others I would advice to watch a more recent comedy of this type. You probably will have more laughs out of those than you will have out of this farce. For me a 4 out of 10.
