This hilarious 1972 film proves that Woody Allen is a gifted with slapstick perversity as he is with cerebral wit. Everything You've Always Wanted to Know about Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask) is a collection of short vignettes concerning people and their problems with sex. The shorts range from a medieval fool doing his darndest to bed the queen to a spoof of the male body during seduction and sexual intercourse. There's even a hilarious skit with Gene Wilder falling in love with a sheep. The jokes are rapid-fire and utterly hilarious and this flick is guaranteed to have you rolling with laughter.

Description

A side-splitting send-up in the form of seven humorous sketches of the human sex drive and the absurd behavior it can lead to in which an average middle-aged Jewish man sneaks upstairs to try on a dinner hostess's dresses, Wilder falls gradually in love with a sheep, and Allen's girlfriend can only reach satisfaction by having sex in public places, all of which lead to disastrous embarrassments for all concerned. A true comedy masterpiece based loosely on the book by Dr. David Reuben.

Notes

Complete title: "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*but Were Afraid to Ask)." Segments were cut from the film before its release, including bits of a game show parody called "What's My Perversion?" and a sequence about the black-widow spider called "What Makes a Man a Homosexual?" in which the female spider, played by Louise Lasser, has sex with the male, played by Woody Allen, and then is expected to devour its mate after intercourse. Allen cut the spider sequence because he reportedly didn't know how to end it. Color by DeLuxe. Released theatrically in the USA August 1972. Re-released theatrically in New York City July 6-12, 1990. Re-released theatrically in Athens, Greece September 28, 1990.
