Where's the bull? Where's the virgin?
Edwige Fenech plays a woman whose husband won't sleep with her (thus all plausibility is abandoned from the get-go), but chases after everything else in a skirt. To get back at him she exposes her breasts to all his friends at a pool party and then drags some poor guy into pool house, locks the door, and bounces loudly on the bed while her husband goes crazy outside. He doesn't learn his lesson though and continues his philandering, so she really does cuckold him with a suave gigolo played by Ray Lovelock (who was in "Breakfast at Manchester Morgue" and many other movies better than this one). Don't worry though, it all ends with the usual 70's libertine codas--"I'm OK, you're OK"; "If it feels OK, do it" (however you say that in Italian).
I think this movie would have been a lot funnier if I was halfway fluent in Italian, but it probably would have been infinitely more painful too. Besides, I didn't watch this for the comedy (I wanted to see all those interesting 1970's European fashions that Fenech and the rest of the female cast were NOT wearing ). I do think they incorrectly translated the English title "The Virgin, the Bull, and the Capiricorn". It probably should been the more astrological "The Virgo, the Taurus, and the Capricorn" because I didn't see a bull anywhere--and I definitely see a virgin.
