Avoid. Just avoid.
'Secrets of the Satin Blues' was one I rented because the box copy dropped Claude Chabrol's name, and made this feeble little bit of fluff sound something like a sexier version of 'The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie'. The latter was one of the best social satires to come out of France in the 1970s.
This one features no comedy, no satire, not much to look at, crummy production values, an unattractive cast (one would think good looking cast members would be a necessity for any sex comedy) and little story to speak of, just a series of pointless vignettes involving cheating women.
