Giorgia and her sister inherit a villa and decide to turn it into a pension. When the sister orders the advertising, the brochure, together with the name, Pension Paradise, leads people to believe it is a whore house.
Gloria Guida plays a teenage streetwalker nicknamed "Blue Jeans" because of the short-shorts(what's left of 'em anyway)that she always wears. After she is picked up on prostitution charge by the police, she claims to be the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy local artist--even though he denies it--and is sent to live with him until he is able to legally disavow his relationship to her. Much (alleged)hilarity ensues as she wanders around the house naked, antagonizes his live-in girlfriend, and disrupts his society parties. But then the movie takes a serious turn when her pimp boyfriend shows up and a murder plot is hatched.
Guida, a former Miss Teenage Italy, appeared in any number of frothy Italian sex comedies in the mid-to-late 1970's ( i.e. "La Ragazzina, "La Liceale")and also a number of pot-boiler melodramas that were somewhat similar to, but mostly lacked the style of, Italian gialli (i.e. "So Young, So Lovely, So Vicious", "Perfect Crime"). This movie manages to combine both of these with a genuinely comical plot and a darker, more serious subplot. In that respect it's somewhat similar to Guida's most famous movie Ferdinand DeLeo's "Being Twenty", but it's not really a patch on that one. Guida was not really a great actress, but that was hardly the point--she looks good both in and out of her short-shorts (she gives a cheeky performance in more ways than one). She was often cast in these Lolita-type roles, even though she was probably too voluptuous to be believable as a seventeen-year-old when she WAS a seventeen-year-old (several years before this movie was made). There is also the added perversity of the incest angle: Is the man really her father? Is she going to have sex with him anyway? If you have seen any of these 70's Italian sex comedies you can probably guess the answer, but rest assured it's NOT the most perverse possible permutation.
The dubbing is awful. The title song is wretched. The actor playing the father is decent, and his "older" girlfriend is a pretty good side-dish to Guida, but the "pimp" role is laughably filled by an Italian pretty-boy who is about as un-threatening as they come. The movie is not very funny,on one hand, and pretty damn hard to take seriously, on the other. It really only has the delectable Gloria Guida to recommend it-- but, you know, that just might be enough.
