Superior Sergio Martino Italian sex comedy
Director Sergio Martino is probably most famous for his gialli (i.e. "Torso", "All the Colors of Darkness"), but he also has shown quite a gift for comedy. All of his comedies I've seen have been well above average (i.e. not entirely worthless dreck). This one is actually a little light on the naked lovelies (Edwige Fenech only shows off her famous breasts one at a time in two brief scenes, and Michaela Mitti has only a small part as a prostitute pretending to be a nun). The movie is genuinely funny, however, and its humor is based in zany situations and manages to overcome both a relative dearth of skin and the usual atrocious English dubbing job.

A married tailor for the clergy (Lino Banfi) meets a beautiful would-be church singer (Edwige Fenech) on a business trip and convinces her that he is actually his lothario business partner and upstairs neighbor. When she shows up unexpectedly in Rome, he borrows his neighbor's flat and installs her there, trying to carry on an affair while his own neglected wife and son are downstairs. His plan goes horribly awry, however, and he finds himself being deservedly cuckolded.

Banfi is actually far funnier here than he is any of the movies he did with Gloria Guida (although it is hard to fathom how a bald, paunchy older guy like Banfi could get anywhere near a beauty like Fenech). Fenech herself is also a genuinely good comic actress. She probably could have gotten by a lot of the time without taking her clothes off (but I'm sure no one has ever complained that she so often did). Mostly though, I'd credit Sergio Martino, who should really be recognized as one of Italy's best journey-man directors.
