Storyline

Eve is dressed in a long raincoat and follows the handyman around as he makes his appointed rounds. She watches as he has humorous run-ins while cleaning toilets, taking scrap metal to the dump, cleaning windows, delivering a tree, climbing poles, and remaining a gentleman while trying to help a topless hitchhiker. But why is she watching him so carefully? Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

It's just one joke...
7 August 2000 | by essmeierSee all my reviews

...but it is funny. Eve, the unnamed narrator (played by Russ Meyer's then-wife Eve), is following a handyman, private detective-style, around town as he does his odd jobs, taking copious notes on his behavior for reasons that are not immediately explained. Of course, each of these jobs seems to take place in a setting that includes a busty blonde, each of whom are also played by Eve Meyer. For the most part, the handyman is preoccupied with his work, and relatively oblivious to the charms of the women. At the conclusion of the film, Eve confronts the handyman and we finally find out the nature of her motives. The film really does build up to one big joke, but it's pretty funny, especially if you don't see it coming. Good early effort from Meyer. 7/10.
