Storyline

Bentzi, Momo, and Yuda'leh are three teenage boys growing up in 1950's Israel, which is not much different from 1950's America if you believe what you see in the film. Of course they are obsessed with one thing - sex. Bentzi is interested in the beautiful Nili, but she prefers his friend Momo. Meanwhile, while Bentzi is working delivering ice to people he comes across a voluptous nympho. For some reason he leaves his job and gets his friends, who are promptly invited inside and divested of their virginity in an explicit softcore sex scene. Momo goes first, then the obese Yuda'leh. Before Bentzi can have his turn the nypho's sailor boyfriend suddenly returns from the sea and chases the boys away, Yuda'leh being forced to run away naked. The boys next visit a prostitute and are serviced by her in turn, the experience causing Bentzi to vomit. With all this experience under his belt Momo seduces Nili and impregnates her. He disowns her when she makes this known to him, leaving it to ... Written by Tim Curtiss <Tim_the_Bald@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Some including cameraman Adam Greenberg claim that producers Globus and Golam were basically broke after completing the movie and only its huge success kept them in business making it possible for them to found "Canon Films" in the U.S. However, Yoram Globus has stated that this wasn't true.

I love you Nikki and I know it's forever.
23 November 2013 | by lastliberal-853-253708See all my reviews

Watching this movie is like listen to a CD with all the great songs of the 50s: Little Richard, The Chordettes, Bill Haley and the Comets, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many many more. It was the best soundtrack I have ever heard in a movie. Nineteen hits!

The movie is the original that The Last American Virgin was based upon. If you like to see the originals as I do, then you can't miss this. Did I mention the awesome soundtrack?

Yftach Katzur was fantastic as Benz. He and his two buddies, Momo (Jonathan Sagall) and Hughie (Zachi Noy), are on a mission to get laid. They get involved in several situations, and Benz just seems to be luckless in this department.

The main theme of the movie is Benz's infatuation with Niki (Anat Atzmon). He loses her immediately to Momo, and things go downhill. The ending is a heart-breaker.

Yes, there is a sequel, supposedly seven of them!
