    I liked it alot. Obviously, there wasn't a huge budget but the story and people were engrossing enough to carry the film. i thought some of the critics got it wrong. This movie defies them precisely because it is a just-do-it philosophy, it doesn't try to present a political or societal point of view, which I quite enjoyed. Sex used to be fun without all the head trips.

    The New York Daily News gave this three stars and yet the score in the list is only a 60 for that review. I thought three-star reviews were given a 75 score. Can you check this? The mislabeling of the review brought the overall score down to a 60 when it should be much higher.

  1. It leaves you feeling queasy.
  2. 75
    Doesn't have a particularly well-defined point of view, but it is a succinct, entertaining and valuable record of a time that in some ways now seems as remote as the Roaring '20s.
  3. But even a comic spin on grimace-inducing tales of the icky buffet, the "mattress room" (whatever you're imagining, that's it) and Levenson's own buffoonish image as a 10-ladies-a-night player -- "He never read a book," Al Goldstein cracks -- can't keep an unexplored sadness from slithering in amid the orgy of upbeat testimonials.
