"Sybil Danning, one of the best looking women ever born, stars in this European sex comedy.
Basically the plot evolves around a girl who takes a bet that she can get a philandering sex-advice columnist to propose marriage to her. She takes a job as his maid/housekeeper and proceeds to flirt with him as the most outrageous tease of all time. While all the other women, and there are a few, are throwing themselves at him in a quest to be his current crumpet, Sybil lets him get as far a groping privaleges, but no further, tormenting him endlessly. On those rare occassions when she is wearing clothing, she (Sybil) still manages to be half-naked. Her poor victim remains dazed and confused through most of the movie.
It is basically an excuse for young women to run around with little or no clothing, but it does have a plot, and, although it is no cinematic masterpiece, it is well enough done to be genuinely funny and engaging. Even the bad dubbing doesn't hurt too much."

"As a fan of Sybil Danning's erotic presence in films such as Blue Beard, Julie Darling and Playing with Fire, I decided to give French Pussycat a purchase, especially as the only review posted here on Amazon at the time was extremely positive.
Now I feel I must add my own view as there are yet more glowingly positive opinions of this movie.
Sorry, but this inept flick has all the erotic charge of a rotting sex toy. Miss Danning is to my taste just not alluring in this picture, but she's not alone. The picture quality is poor, but the real disappointment is the overall lack of sexiness on show, due to a lack of artistry, primarily from the director, production and lighting personnel.
I'm stunned that the other reviews here seem to rate French Pussycat 5 stars as if it were a classic of erotic cinema, I could not agree less. Even the awful Howling 2 features a sexier Sybil than the one on display here.
I have reviewed two better examples of erotica on DVD, here at Amazon, take a look at my reviews for Images in a Convent and Red Nights of the Gestapo and decide if I know what I'm writing about, before you decide to buy this less than chic cheapie.

"This picture opened overseas in 1972 in 1972 and it didn't come to the Unites States until 19977, starring a young but gorgeous Sybil Danning as Andrea, Michael Cromer as Rolf and Nino Korda as Stempel. Susan who's Rolf girl friend comes home from a trip 1 day earlier then she was suppose to. Upon entering the house, she finds Rolf in bed with the house cleaner. Now Rolf is a writer who works for a newspaper and he answer questions from people that are experiencing problem with sex. Therefore, Susan goes to see her girl friend Andréa who's getting on with her boy friend. After Andrea gets rid of her man Andrea and Susan, get into bed and have a drink that cures a broken heart. While in bed the girls start talking when Andrea makes a bet with Susan that she can get Rolf to marry her without sleeping together first. The next day Rolf is in the kitchen trying to cook him some breakfast when the doorbell rings. At the door is Andrea who is responding to Rolf aid for a new housekeeper. Therefore, the question that still remains can Andrea gets Rolf to marry her without having sex. Now a few thoughts of my own about this picture. This picture lacked the action and drama to keep an ordinary movie lover to finish it. However, the reason I bought to movie was a Young but gorgeous Sybil Danning. If you're a Sybil Danning fan you will love this movie. This picture show offs Sybil Body unlike any movie before. Let's not forget about her acting either because she's very good at that also. However, this movie is about one thing and one thing only and that's Sybil Danning body. Without any doubt, at all I give this movie 10 weasel stars on Sybil Danning alone."
