Movie Info

Two servants place a bet on who can be the first to seduce the other's wealthy female employer, setting off an outrageous series of sexual entanglements and comic confusions. Paul Bartel's comedy uses its bedroom farce framework to satirize Beverly Hills society, particularly the lives of the shallow rich.

As a follow-up to Eating Raoul, Paul Bartel's satire is disappointing. It's a meandering movie of some funny moments and biting scenes, but it shows the director's limitations.

Audience Reviews for Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills

This bizaree retread of Luis Buneul films is a somewhat amusing send up of class, manners, and sexual mores

A brainless and astonishly unamusing sex farce played out at a furious pace among the rampantly randy rich of Beverly Hills and their servants. Bisset's got talent and looks.
