The adventures of four aup pair girls and their first night in London:
- First off there's Nan Lee (Me Me Lai), who is hired as a friend for
rich, 18-year old Rupert (Julian Barnes). Rupert has been groomed to
become a concert pianist, but knows little about the real world outside.
Nan Lee falls for his innocent charms, and before long, she has seduced
him ... but sneaks out of the house (and of her job) before Rupert awakens
the next morning.
- Christa (Nancie Wait) is a virgin from Germany, but Carol (Lyn
Yeldham) won't have a virgin around, so she gives her to her musician
boyfriend Ricky Strange (Steve Patterson) to deflower her. But while she
develops romantic feelings for Ricky, he isn't the least interested in her
and doesn't even mind when Buster (John Standing), a friend of his, tries
to rape her right next to him. Needless to say, Christa immediately quits
- Randi (Gabrielle Drake) is picked up from the au pair agency by
Steven (Richard O'Sullivan), who is so klutzy that he first accidently
tears her dress apart, then soaks her (and the dress) in water, so before
long she ends up dressed only in a blanket, and she and Steven drive
around town to find a new dress for her (her own luggage is safely locked
away in the trunk and Steven has lost the key). Eventually, they end up in
a carpark and make love, then fall asleep ... but when the next day,
Stephen's father (John Le Mesurier) catches his son in his car with a
naked girl, the girl is fired.
- Finally, Anita (Astrid Frank) has hit it big ... not so much because
of the family she stays with - actually she's fired the first night - but
because she has met a rich Sheikh (Ferdy Mayne), who wants her as his handmaiden
(if you know what I mean).
And since the sheikh might need more of these handmaidens, Anita
picks up the other girls from the au pair agency ...
The film is exactly what it sounds like: a silly and forgettable 1970's
sex comedy. But if you are in the mood for silly and forgettable 1970's
sex comedies (as I am quite frequently), you might actually enjoy this.
