The bottom of the well
26 April 2007 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

Although I have seen a truly shameful number of Italian sex comedies starring Gloria Guida (and others), I really went to the well one too many times with this one. Guida plays an incredibly stupid "au pair girl" (as opposed to an au pair guy?)who, after losing her virginity in a train tunnel(you don't wanna know, believe me), comes to work for a greedy couple who make money by renting her out to all the other tenants in their building--a hooker, a lesbian, an in-hock father and his sexy gold-digging daughter, a closeted-gay politician, a dying old man, and pretty much every other Italian sex comedy cliché imaginable.

Naturally, this movie is badly-dubbed by the usual bunch of thoroughly unfunny idiots, and the plot could charitably be described as random. Worst of all perhaps though, there is not nearly as much nudity as everyone has come to expect from ole Miss Teen Italy of 1974. There is a running joke, for instance, where her male employer keeps trying unsuccessfully to see his au pair naked. It's one thing, however, to relentlessly tease a lecherous character in a movie; it's whole other thing though to relentlessly tease all the lecherous people in the audience. To be fair, Guida and some of the other women do have some brief nude scenes, but the only guy, on or off-screen, that gets to see "all" of Guida is the dying old man in a blatant rip-off of the end of Ursula Andress's "The Sensuous Nurse".

With the exception of "Being Twenty" all of Guida's movies that I've seen are pretty bad, but they are ALL better than this one.
