Synopsis

A comely airhead working in a lingerie shop alienates her husband by realizing one of the fantasies she tells him at bedtime, but he comes round eventually and lets her be as flighty as she wants.

The Review

Plotless, witless, would-be comedy, apparently mesmerised by its star's behind, which the camera settles on at every opportunity. It does little to advance the cause of feminism, positing that all women like nothing more than a bit of variety in their partners. Da Ponte's eponymous irony, however, is somewhat absent in the updating, with the husband merely a cuckold and the wife gigglingly aware of her own depravity.
