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.

Goofy but enjoyable.

Wears one down with a long running time and diminishing returns on its wicked premise.

A sexy, exuberant (if overly long) tale.
