User Reviews

Edwige Fenech's best role(s) (probably)
15 April 2007 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

After years of playing the terrified target of deranged killers in gialli, or the sex-object nurse, teacher, wife, girlfriend (like her secondary role in this movie), etc., it's nice to see Edwige Fenech in a role that gives her the chance to throw punches and outsmart the villains (not that it's very hard though, since they are all idiots!). And don't worry, she still gets to show plenty of her 4-star cleavage. She is much more lively and animated here than she is in her serious films. The film has some really crude gags, but a couple of genuine laughs as well (a sniper, aiming for Fenech, shoots a jogger in Central Park, the jogger falls down and Alvaro Vitali comments: "Wow, that guy is really out of shape!"). The production values are higher than usual for an Italian sex comedy: they include location filming in New York, some fairly elaborate stunts, and even a car chase at the end. Now, if only I could track down Edwige's two other Policewoman films.....(**)
