Beautiful movie!

Take one part "Overboard," add two parts "Blue Lagoon," and throw in a pinch of "Taming of the Shrew," and you get the idea. It's a battle of the sexes, re-assessment of social classes and roles, and the awakening of repressed passions. Excellent performances, wonderfully witty script, and gorgeous Mediterranean locales make this sexually-charged (though not quite fully erotic) tale a ton of fun to watch.

Fast-talking, passionately political, visceral class/sex/love struggles. Mariangela Melato as a Monica Vitti from the "right" side of the tracks . . . on steroids and hormones. Inadvertently hilarious.

Racy and randy

I had no idea how this movie became a classic ... until I watched it. While the era makes for some film inconsistencies you probably won't see in the remake with Madonna, the original wins hands down! Racy, edgy, and equally surprising. I expected a sweet romance and found nothing of the sort. Make sure the kids are in bed when you fire this one up.
