Movie Info

Eve is dressed in a long raincoat and follows the handyman around as he makes his appointed rounds. She watches as he has humorous run-ins while cleaning toilets, taking scrap metal to the dump, cleaning windows, delivering a tree, climbing poles, and remaining a gentleman while trying to help a topless hitchhiker. But why is she watching him so carefully?

All Critics (1)

Eve illustrates one of Meyer's ironies, that he's a filmmaker with unpretentious chauvinist interests, yet his primary character is an empowered female.

Audience Reviews for Eve and the Handyman


A bit faster than the methodical "Mr. Teas" which preceded it, and with more plot and much less nudity. Yet still, the punchlines are lacking, and the plot, while present, is merely a single, cheesy punchline. All the same, this is a movie which worships cheesy punchlines and sophmoric ogling, and shows director Russ Meyer moving away from indulgent nudity and towards his trademark clever innuendo and stick-and-carrot fetishism.
