Lots of fun for any voyeur
18 August 2001 | by videoguy-1See all my reviews

This is not a great movie, but one that entertains nonetheless. I have no idea why it is still unavailable on video. Richard Benjamin at his quirkiest 70's best, is a somewhat unhappy married guy who enjoys looking at girls whenever, and wherever he can. He also tends to get caught more often than he'd like. The whole story is a rather poor man's "Graduate" in that the lead is a anti-establishment kind of guy and he hates living in a world of rules he doesn't understand or believe in. So, we follow him on his quest for freedom and sexual satisfaction. It is a fun trip. Movie fans that enjoy watching this sort of time capsule will have a great time. It is a film that is curiously missing from anyone's collection.
