    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    A big fluff ball of a sex farce that's so light and flimsy it's a wonder they were able to thread it through the projector. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A smart, sprightly little movie with beguiling actors and few inhibitions. Though there's nothing startlingly new here, there's a freshness and vigor to the acting, and the crisscrossing love affairs hold your interest. show more

    Too bad it doesn't deserve to fold the bedsheets of Paul Mazursky's L.A. roundelay "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" (1969). show more

    The exuberance of the package, coupled with a sexual frankness seldom seen in English language cinema, makes this the most fun foreign film since "Y Tu Mamá También." show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Lame and inane, but a huge hit in Spain. show more
