The author, a screen writer, is at the controls all the way in this cheerfully elaborate partner-swap maneuver set in holiday Italy. Three American women are sitting ducks for villa-renting Count Leopoldo. Cara's the voluptuous mother of two screwed-up teenagers, wife of pudgy gentle Ben, and she's hoping to find aristocratic connections among the remnants of her Italian family in a remote village. Timid Jean, married to handsome, callow Ralph, is agog with culture. Cool young Joella, a jobless rover, will bed any way but wed no way. Leopoldo loves them all with the virtuoso's taste for variety: Cara has the drive of a Ferrari on the fur-covered water bed; Jean unfolds like a daffodil; but Joella, attracted against her will to the more-than-carnal demands of sculptor Dan, is Leopoldo's true goal. Under warm Italian thighs, Jean, Cara, and Joella reappraise alliances--and when Ben and the children and Ralph show up, all hell inevitably pops. But the gentle, fierce, and nice in-betweens pair off sensibly, leaving deflated Leopoldo to brood about the empty space and hot air within the bella figura. Light, tight, and just right for the summer rerun time.
