Rating is 3.5 stars... "Bottoms up" gets 5 stars, but the other three movies are deserving anything between 3 and 3.75 stars. Read on to find out why....
Every now and then I wander into unchartered territory... I did a bit of research on this one before buying it. The title Bavarian Sex Comedy Collection may be misleading to some. Films are made in Germany and it is a collection alright, but then....
In terms of comedy, I expected more Burlesque and slapstick humor. These films are light-hearted and easy-going, but they are not hilarious. Some scenes are funny, at best. Kink-wise, the movies are in the sexy to nudie-cuties range. One movie is more soft-porn and does not fit in the mix. The scenarios are custom-made to support as much nudity as possible. They are very representative of the 70s. They reminded me of the British series (Confessions of.... and Carry on....), but in a less amusing way.. Call me old-fashioned if you wish, but the integrity and classiness of the 60s and 70s natural-looking beauty are still unsurpassed. Surgically altering god's creation is something I cannot understand. In these movies, the actresses are totally loveable, even in their physical imperfections.
The adders are a bunch of trailers promoting vintage skin flicks side-by-side with modern-day soft-porn. By the way, the packaging is garbage.
If your decade is the 70s or if you are a true woman-lover, you will enjoy these films as they are loaded with all sorts of nudity scenes. Otherwise , then stay away from it or do some more research before investing 20 dollars or so...

At the price, quite good value for money with four soft-core films and informative liner notes.
All four films have mildly humorous plots and a decent amount of nudity. The women are attractive, and quite natural - all filmed before artificial enhancement became the norm. Nothing hard-core here, but there is full frontal nudity - nothing shaven, just lightly trimmed bushiness.
In terms of transfer from film, quality is reasonable and perhaps a little cleaning up has been done - but certainly not remastering. Perhaps that adds to the charm, and keeps the cost down.

Bottoms Up deserves five stars, Run, Virgin, Run perhaps 3 stars, the others one star is a compliment. The collection barely makes the status of 'comedy'.
There are some amazingly beautiful women, appearing in their natural beauty. Combine the beautiful women with some gorgeous scenery and a little bit of humour, and it makes for a great night at the movies.
