Unendurable "comedy"
26 November 2008 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

2 stars out of 10 for this one - ONLY because Edwige Fenech looks almost as good in a military uniform as she does naked. She is not in the movie that much though, despite her top billing, and she only gets naked once or twice. No, most of the running time is devoted to the "comedy", which primarily revolves around farting, but finds space for equally sophisticated subjects such as fat women and retarded men. Seriously, even the most fanatic Edwige fans should avoid this film, it's a total waste of her and probably one of the worst things she has ever been associated with. There is not even one funny gag, and barely any moments of sensuality.
