Power hungry, 17 December 2001
Author: Kakueke

The Italians know how to make 'em. I rented this movie wary about whether I would just see a silly, stupid sex comedy and I found otherwise. Very amusing, Professor Coppola discovering that energy from sex is a viable way to solve a serious energy (as in power supply, electricity fuel, etc.) problem. Then, not just the government gets involved, but the church--its great.

Once the basics, the experiment, are accomplished, what is are the grander goals--how much sex gives how much power? What are the parameters for goals, what can be done with it? The government licks its chops. The churchman asks, don't we need love as well as sex? What are the role of gang bangs, perversions, whatever? OK, the latter two are just thoughts not action, and that is good--just part of the wit. A lot of that is present here. There are mainly one stud and two gorgeous leading ladies, but the professor also discovers his wife is cheating on him. Great fun and lighthearted--you'll enjoy it.
