| Poor sex farce
Three allegedly hilarious sexual stories are in the film.

The first one has a man (the talented Pat Paulsen) buying a sexual robot (or something) who looks and sounds like a woman. He "hysterically" tries to have sex and wine and dine her again and again...failing each time. The ending is REALLY stupid. Only interesting part here is seeing Paul Dooley as a salesman.

The second one about a man with writers block and his muse and something involving undressing a woman. Even worse than the first despite the presence of Jerry Orbach.

I THOUGHT the last one would be good. It has Zero Mostel and Estelle Parsons playing the president and his wife. Their daughter is kidnapped but she will be returned to them safe...IF they have sex on national TV. Mostel and Parsons do their best...but the material isn't there.

I do wonder how they got such talented actors to do such drivel. My guess is they all lost a bet or something:) There's MAYBE one or two laughs in this whole movie--and they're in the last segment only. This is a stupid, unfunny, smutty movie--even the requisite female nudity is boring! For masochists only. I give it a 1.
