Director Martin Campbell went on to mainstream success with such mainstream blockbusters as GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro and the recently released Casino Royale. As a major player in the mainstream world of movies, it's fascinating to look at back at this early directorial effort. It's not particularly good, but it's a fun enough excursion.
In The Sex Thief, a jewelry thief breaks into women's home, and has sex with them before taking off with his prize. The lonely, needy women never report him; in fact, they give incorrect to throw off the investigators.
The women are natural and attractive. The sex is basically a bunch of rolling about, which lends to low head levels, but it's all presented with a light touch.
Verdict? An enjoyable ?70s sex comedy from across the pond.
Retailing: Martin Campbell fans will jump over each other for this one.
