Synopsis: The continuing exploits and escapades of Benzi and his pals.

Benzi has a new girlfriend who is devoted to him (it’s their 2 month anniversary), but when the character of Nili/Nikki returns from LP1 (different actress), he starts sneaking around behind her back seeking the favors of the ‘action woman’. Meanwhile Benzi’s cousin from Poland moves into the apartment and gets everyone’s hormones in high gear, including Benzi’s dad. She’s played by German Sybile Rauch early in her career before she started hardcore features, and this is the first of several appearances for her in the continuing series.  Bracha is back as Yudale’s girlfriend, but mostly in the background.

There are lots of episodic hijinks to engage Benzi, Yudale, and Momo when Benzi’s not hiding from his girlfriend or getting in fights over Nikki. This third installment is raunchy as the first but still introspective like the second; overall a very good entry that kept audiences (in Israel and Germany, especially) coming back for more.

The DVD:

A fullscreen PAL presentation in Israeli with English subtitles, no extras. This is still the only was to go if you want the original language track. The golden oldies rock ‘n roll soundtrack is here once more, but there are some repeated tunes from prior features.
