The primary reason to seek this one out is as a pre-international stardom nudie cutie vehicle starring Sybil Danning. She definitely exhibits star quality, and she frequently displays her ‘fine form’ in lingerie, risque nurse uniforms, and nothing at all. Even though her character is frigid, she is still a stunner.
Alas, the real main character is the father, and he even looks looks like Benny Hill. One scene has all the men in a rest home chasing after the nurses (including Sybil) in undercranked (sped up) chase scenes. If you are a devout Hill fan you should be right at home. Others will be waiting for the next nude scene (about every 10 minutes).
All the long stretches of dialog would be more easily endured if there was an original language track with English subtitles. All we get is the English dub. Overall a good presentation of an unrestored export print, though the forced trailers at the beginning are a little annoying.
Things do pick up once the Viagra is unleashed and there are some inventive and funny bits. This is hardly a classic, but it does expose Sybil Danning in her prime, and is a fair representative of light Swedish sex comedy.
