I would have to say that this film will appeal to middle aged persons looking for a few laughs and those who are fans of Sharon Stone, who is just gorgeous in this one. Hope I look as good as her when I am older but sadly I know from now that may never happen! But I did go along to see this film where, for a change Woody Allen is starring in a film. Instead it is directed by the other star of the film, John Torturro, who also wrote it.
The story revolves around Murray (Woody Allen) who is a bookseller in New York and his friend, Fioravante (John Torturro). Murray mentions to Fioravante that his dermatologist was looking for a menage a trois and basically this gives Murray an idea of what he could do to earn some extra money. He promotes Fioravante as a gigolo and sends him to meet some eager women. It is all working well until Fiorovante meets a Jewish widow who is quite special and the whole plot, the sexual one that is, begins to unravel.
It helps if you know a little bit about Jewish culture as well, and it is an interesting insight into some of the more Orthodox Jewish customs and practices but it is also a riot of diversity and New Yorkishness and just fun. Woody, who really seems to be very comfortable playing himself, is quite hilarious and the plot is designed to raise a few laughs and some eyebrows.
