Billed as a Peruvian version of Catch-22 crossed with Dr. Strangelove, this army satire, directed by Francisco J. Lombardi, is about Captain Pantaleon Pantoja (Salvador Del Solar), who heads a hooker squad designed to keep the troops from manhandling the locals. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Director Francisco de Lombardi fills his sensual film with plenty of gorgeous shots of the lush landscape and its equally exotic, miniskirted 'fauna.'
This film might've fared better if those involved realized how fiercely their material begs for a plunge into the deep end.
Promises to skewer sexual politics but instead turns out to be a one-joke pony.
Wears one down with a long running time and diminishing returns on its wicked premise.
Francisco Lombardi's film is a bit long, but upholds comedy and jungle sensuality on a very amusing tripod.
Sex comedy has a fun premise, but is surprisingly neither very sexy nor funny.
Del Solar's performance as the quintessential company man gives the film an unexpected poignancy: Neither a rebel nor a conscienceless drone, he's a man who knows his limitations and tries to do his best within them.
Pantaleon y las Visitadoras, which has three distinct acts, each of which works as a self-contained little film, runs a whopping 138 minutes. But it remains enjoyable, even as it grows darker.
This may not seem to be the stuff of comedy, but a comedy it is, and a compelling one too, laden with hot sex and standout performances,
