Some sort of outbreak has hit planet Earth - libidos are through the roof and it's even affecting toys! Sounds like fun, but it's hardly good for productivity. Luckily a team are on the case, aiming to get to the bottom of the strange pandemic. They are a team of astronauts, out in space so as to be safe from the affliction.

Outrageously funny. Initially the movie looked incredibly silly, using what appeared to be scenes from 1970s porn movies with a voice-over. At this point the only good thing was the voice over, as it seemed to be done by one, at most two, men and used for a variety of characters, including women. It reminded me of Woody Allen's "What's Up, Tiger Lily?" where Allen took a Japanese action movie and overdubbed it with his own English narration and dialogue, turning it into a comedy.

However, as you go on you realise there's a method to the silliness. The gratuitous sex and nudity scenes are more parodies of porn than actual porn. The dialogue itself is incredibly funny, with all manner of cultural references thrown in. After a while you also realise that most, if not all, of the scenes were shot for the movie - they're not from existing movies. (The Edward Scissorhands scene gives away the fact that not everything is from the 70s).

Halfway though I was thinking "So bad, it's good" but that opinion improved. The thought that it's so bad, it's good does the movie a disservice, as it implies that writerdirectors Nicolas Charlet and Bruno Lavaine accidentally made a good movie. No, it's better than that. The clever dialogue, the irreverent porn-like scenes - there's a wonderful over-the-topness and free-spirited humour to it all. Reminded me a bit of Danger 5, the Australian comedy series.

Certainly not to everyone's taste, but, if you're not a prude, you should find this very entertaining.
