a good little movie, 5 May 2004
Author: Kenny-36 from Long Beach, Ca

If you have the chance to see this film, be sure to listen carefully to what's being said on the radio in the opening scene: Informed government sources say "Traces of meat have been found in McDonalds hamburgers", "Skid Roll Slasher shoots the Hillside Strangler."

Hot Rackets is a good little movie from the late '70s. There's quite a few erotic scenes to keep you interested. This movie is about a man that, like all men, enjoy sex, but his wife doesn't. So he finds it elsewhere. Should I mention he also likes to swing? He goes to his tennis club for fun and pleasure. At the club is a masseuse, I should be so lucky to be massaged that way. His wife goes to the club thinking her husband is cheating on him and receives a lesson in how to take care of her man. The husband and wife skydive into a friend's party that turns out to be a swinger's party. In the end the wife joins the tennis club and shows her man how happy she can make him.
