Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex*... [VHS]
Woody Allen writes and directs seven sketches prompted by questions from Dr David Reuben's best-selling book. Highlights include a sketch about a doctor (Gene Wilder) who falls in love with a sheep and one entitled 'What Happens During Ejaculation?', in which Allen plays an anxious sperm awaiting his big moment.
A collection of vignettes, loosely based on the book by Dr. David Rueben, written and directed by Woody Allen, Everything contains some very funny moments. It's easy to forget that the cerebral Allen excelled at the type of broad, Catskill, dirty jokes and visual gags that run amok here. It's also remarkable how dirty this 1972 movie really was--bestiality, exposure, perversion and S&M get their moments to shine. The Woody Allen here, who appears in many of the sketches, is a portent of the seedy old Allen of Deconstructing Harry. Although the final bit, which takes place inside a man's body during a very hot date, is hilarious, most of Everything feels like the screen adaptation of a 70s' bathroom joke book. Still, it is a must for Allen fans. --Keith SimantonSee all Product description

The content is brilliant. That's simply everything you need to move on in life;)
Allen took the famous, serious non-fiction book about sex, and turned it into a series of short comedy pieces. A couple segments are pure genius (inside the male body during sex, Gene Wilder falling in love with a sheep), a couple are pretty good (Woody as a medieval court jester trying to have an affair with the queen, who is locked into a chastity belt, a mad scientist creates a giant milk squirting breast that goes on a rampage) and a few are real duds.
Also, of all the Allen films, this might have the worst DVD print/transfer quality.
But if you're a fan, it's certainly worth seeing, and probably worth owning. Even if every segment isn't a gem, you'll want to return to the best ones.
David Hasselhoff drags us by the scrott into the seedy underbelly of Daytona Beach. Crack addicts, gutter ho's and people trafficking are the theme of this gritty film noir, as gritty as sand in your pants after a night with Hobie on the beach, did I mention Mitch has the hopeless task of saving his only son Hobie from the life of a street punk? If you liked Mean Streets and Chinatown check out Daytona Beach when the sun goes down.
