Certainly the best of Woody's early "silly" movies. Funny, smart and terribly stupid. Did what Bananas failed to do - make me laugh.

#WOODYALLENRETRO PODCAST PROJECT (available on iTunes)

Admittedly clever ideas for segments but overall just not as funny as previous works and probably would have worked better if Allen took a more serious stab at the topics with added comedy instead of going full on spoof, has not aged well on rewatch and apart from sheep and ejaculation segments - leaves alot to be desired

sporadically funny, but two sketches stand out, the ''What Is Sodomy?'' and the ''What Happens During Ejaculation?'', the rest have some interesting parts, but not near the humour of these two. Somewhat irregular, but overall an original and funny movie

I dig films that are parted into segments. One poor part don't kill the vibe, and you are almost certain to never get bored.

This is a Woody flick that I never really knew about. One of his first and a film of seven segments, where every part is got some sort of sex or kinky feature. I do enjoy some segments. "Sperm", "Tit", "Sheep" and "Gameshow" all has something in them for me. Gene Wilder is a nice face to see in "Sheep", "Sperm" is probably the smartest and funniest one - great lines here! "Tit" is way out and is silly enough to work, while the idea of "Gameshow" is a pretty accurate diss to TV-shows.

It has hits and misses, but miss more than it hits. When it hits, it often hits you weakly.
I guess it's a bit outdated and the jokes are not that fresh. I do like the idea and it's execution is also all right.

So, an outdated film, that has some very original and far out moves, but the solid humor is not there - it remains a bit flat. If you see it, make sure you see the last part. It adds several total score points for me.

5.5 out of 10 rabbits.

Some of the shorts are hilarious and kind of clever, while others are utterly self-indulgent and unfunny. Woody Allen is a great comedy writer and if you are fan of his work, I think you will appreciate his intelligence and how he managed to come up with seven unique, if not immature, short films. I laughed here and there, but I can't really recommend it to anyone. My advice to those who are thinking about checking it out is this: just have sex with your significant other/friends with benefits/strangers you meet at a bar. It's a lot more pleasurable than watching this movie.

Very clever and fun, if you don't understand Woody you probably won't like it much.

Lauded as one of Allen's more underrated works, I felt this one was a turd. Out of the seven segments, I only found myself enjoying the last three, the public sex one, What's Your Perversion? the game show, and the final one with a look inside the body. I feel the other sketches were just not up par, which is the problem with anthology movies. There's always going to be a weaker part. I didn't like this one, and I do not consider it one of Woody Allen's better films.

There are 7 vignettes in total. I wouldn't say that it's entirely polished from beginning to end, but there are some clever ideas and hysterical moments and quips throughout. This definitely lays the groundwork for even better Allen to come.

Wonderfully absurd sketch comedy that answers the burning questions involving sex.

Unorganized, but hilariously insightful.

An undeniably strange earlier film from Woody Allen based on 7 challenging questions regarding sex & each question is covered by an individual skit.

Hosting many actors & quite a few skits where quite clever especially the final one that was very innovative & imaginative.

It's an odd film & won't be for everyone but I found it original & we'll put together. It has many visuals that will stay with you well after the film.

A skit show played out over 90 minutes...

Brain to ass. Brain to ass. Come in.

This movie depicts several short stories about unique relationships and sexual interactions. The stories take base in different countries and different eras and somehow they all tie together. As is sex, the content mixes love, humor, and unique relationships and desires.

"We have an erection at 45 degrees."

Woody Allen, director of Manhattan, Midnight in Paris, Love and Death, Shadows and Fog, Radio Days, Bananas, Small Time Crooks, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Zelig, and Annie Hall, delivers Everything You Wanted to Know about Sex but Were Afraid to Ask. The storyline for this series was entertaining and fun to watch unfold but some plots were better than others.

"I will open the latch and get her snatch."

I've actually been watching a lot of Woody Allen movies lately and decided to search for his films on cable and DVR'd them as I found them. This is far from his best work but the stories were entertaining and fun to watch unfold. The acting was pretty good and most of the conclusions were predictable but this is worth a viewing despite not being an Allen classic.

"The sheep was under eighteen years old."

Grade: B-

A blunt, hilarious discussion about sex. Many of the jokes are hilarious. Some fall flat. Others are just plain creepy.. I counted 2 pedophile jokes, which I wouldn't mind if it weren't for the fact that Woody is accused of being one. For what it's worth, I laughed an awful lot.

The level of farce here is the highest I've seen in any of Allen's films

Some great subtle, dry and very dirty sketches. Gene Wilder's bit is best.

A couple scenes aside, this is really clever and entertaining film. Creative and witty in classic Woody Allen style. They just don't make comedies like they used to.
