3.0 out of 5 stars Fulci directs political/religious sex comedy! 27 July 2006
This rare 1972 Italian sex comedy is a bizarre entry from Lucio Fulci, better known as a horror/thriller specialist (Lizard in a Woman's Skin, Seven Notes in Black, Zombie,The Beyond). The film is sporadically amusing, and is filled with nudity. However, the DVD is not of the best quality as the print is in very poor shape, and the transfer may not be the greatest as well. It is letterboxed at 1.85:1, and the subtitles are optional and in the lower black widescreen bar. The running time is only 75 minutes, and this is much shorter than many listed running times. For more information see Stephen Thrower's 1999 book, Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the Severin DVD 7 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The other review currently showing is from another release of only 75 minutes under the alternative 'Senator' title, the release by Severin as 'The Eroticist' is 109 minutes and a far better print quality. As for the film, it's a decent sex/anti-politics/religion comedy, I only bought it as I'm a Fulci completist but I was pleasantly suprised. Certainly watchable, amusing in places and the type of occasional T & A expected of a 70's Italian sex comedy. A decent performance from the male lead certainly helps the film hold the viewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Holiday gift for your local parish priest. 30 Aug 2006
By Michael J. Edelman - Published on Amazon.com
Twenty or so years ago, when I was in graduate school, a small UHF station in the Detroit area had its late night movie programming taken over- or so it seemed- by a film buff with a taste for low-budget European soft core. There were lots of German lesbian vampire films, strange Italian fantasies, and this movie, which seemed to play at least once a month. A small group of my fellow students (yes, we were all studying psychology, as amatter of fact) became rabid fans of this film series (and of Prisoner Cell Block H, but that's another story.)

The Senator Likes Women is a classic sort of Italian dark comedy and parody, combined with a typically Italian strong anti-Church message. The Senator is a young politician on his way up, destined for the Presidency. He's the product of years of careful grooming by the Church, and by one Bishop in particular who watches over him and advises him. He does have one problem- he's prone to blackouts in which he makes love to dozens of women- and you can guess from the pictures where some of those women reside.

I won't spoil the plot- such as it is- with further details, but I will note that there are some very dark twists intertwined with the comdey and sexual romps. It's not a film for everyone, but if the description appeals to you... well, you're one of those it's for.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Italian Sex Comedies 2 Dec 2010
By J. W. Fritz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are a lot of different kinds of comedies in this world from many different countries. However when it comes to the genre of Sex Comedy, nobody, but nobody, does it like the Italians. Unlike USA films on the subject of sex, they don't go for teen age boy humor. This film is one of the good ones. If you liked, "Divorce, Italian Style" for example, this should be your kind of movie. I use to have an Italian Sex Comedy which in English is called "Come Have Coffee With Us" I had a VHS copy that I got from Cinemax back in the 80s' I have looked for this film in any format and it's not there. Wish they would release more of these from the 1960-80s' era.

Also I might add that another reason to enjoy this film is Laura Antonelli! A true latin beauty and excellent in comedies as well as serious drama.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mad movie 5 Jun 2010
By HPF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A lot of movie packed into this; a mix of italian politics, religion and fascism. Misses the eroticism, though. The title is a bit mis-leading.
