Fairly amusing very (non)-British sex farce.
5 October 2002 | by rlcsljoSee all my reviews

The plot about secret agents trying to get hold of a fairly sophisticated electronic cigarette lighter and the poor sap (Laid) that gets in the middle is just a thin thread to string together some fairly arousing sexual vignettes as he fantasizes about the femme fatale (Lupercal). Although shot mostly about the "upper crust", the humor is mostly low brow, kind of like Benny Hill--definitely not your usually sophisticated British sex comedies.

The height of the film is the sexual vignettes and they are quite well done, the girls are beautiful to gorgeous and there is plenty of gratuitous nudity to go around for all but the most jaded hard core sex fiend. It was definitely a cut above the usual American films of the same ilk.
