This elegant erotic comedy of (bad) manners stands as one of the late Chuck Vincent's most accomplished achievements, quite different in tone in fact from his other work which was divided between opposing ends of laugh out loud farce and heavy drama. The humor here will put a smile on your face and occasionally even make you chuckle, if only through recognition of the elaborate structures certain "straight people" – such as ourselves ? – will resort to in order to cover up their illicit dalliances. Chuck has undoubtedly made funnier films – think MISBEHAVIN' or JACK 'N' JILL – but this ranks as one of his most insightful and bittersweet, a sentiment rarely found in adult. The story, cooked up by Vincent and regular contributor Jimmy James, takes a simple situation and runs with it : how a basically innocent rumor can be distorted and blown way out of proportion through gossip and people's propensity to see only the evil in others. Indeed, scratch at the film's deceptively frothy surface and you'll find a surprisingly serious subtext, tempered with the director's customary wit and benevolent tolerance of human foibles.
