Softcore Pornography at Its Best...English Style!

"I have never forgotten having insomnia one night in the middle 1980's, when I saw "Can You Keep It Up for a Week?" on a cable channel. All these years I have frequently thought about the film. When I recently saw that it was now on DVD, I had to get it.The movie is both funny and arrousing. The gist of the story is this: A bumbling young English male can not manage to keep a job for more than a couple of days. In fact, according to his girlfriend, his only expertise is in bed. So she holds off on accepting his offer of marriage until, and if, he can keep a job for an entire week.Of course, the title of the film has a double meaning, and throughout the film, just about everything you see or hear has a sexual tone to it. I am reminded of the 1970's television show Three's Company, in which every episode was based on misunderstanding and sexually suggestive situations.Speaking of which, at every temporary job our main character in the movie gets, he quickly finds himself in a sexual situations. As the instructions from the temporary agency are that he is to always give the customer what the customer wants, our character does his best to follow through, no matter how compromising the predicament.The result is lots of female nudity, a nice lesbian scene, and some delightful acts of swinging sex.Though this is not hardcore stuff, the movie is playful, and if you liked Benny Hill's material, it is likely to be just your cup of tea!"

"I thought the covergirl would be the centerpiece of the film...How wrong I was. Otherwise, this is a campy bit of English...well...camp. Believe it or not, a few nude romps ensue. Ok in my humble opinion."
