Fun Entry in the Genre

Swinging Wives (1971)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

At times funny German "report" film has a reporter walking around the streets trying to figure out why so many housewives become bored sexually and must seek out men other than their husbands. Throughout the 82-minute running time we see several situations where horny women must look somewhere else while the husband is at work.

Ernst Hofbauer, the king of the "report" genre, directs this entry into the extremely large series that has tackled all sorts of issues. The "housewife" genre had quite a few entries in it, although it never reached the level of the "schoolgirl report" films. For the most part this here is pretty entertaining from start to finish as it certainly delivers on all the nudity and sex that you'd expect but thankfully there are some fairly comical situations on display here to keep you entertained. After all, the nudity can only go so far and you've got to have something else there on display.

There are several funny sequences here but the highlight is probably one of the shortest as a beer delivery man goes to drop off his beer when he walks into a house with four naked women. At first he's angered at what they're doing to him but then he finally gets what lays ahead. Another funny sequence comes towards the end of the picture when a husband refuses to buy an expensive dress for his wife even though he spends his money on prostitutes. The wife comes up with a good plan for revenge. As you can tell, this is the type of humor presented throughout the film. Some of them work very well whereas others are decent at best. However, none of the stories are downright boring or bad.

For the most part this film delivers pretty much what you're expecting it to. The sex crowd will be happy with what's on display and there's no doubt that they hired some extremely good-looking women to take their clothes off. As with other report films, the "interviews" on the street are highly entertaining even if you have to question how legit they actually are.
