User Reviews: HOW FUNNY CAN SEX BE? is an Italian film originally called SESSOMATTO ("Crazy Sex") and features Giancarlo Giannini, well-known from his films with Lina Wertmuller, and co-star Laura Antonelli. Originally a movie of eleven segments, it has been cut down to eight. In each brief episode we watch Giannini in some kind of sexual escapade, predicament, or buffoonery, from a bout with an overweight Milanese drag queen to an erotic dream about a nun (Antonelli) at a hospital where he has volunteered as an artificial insemination donor. Although there is an occasional moment or two of genuine wit and humor, I found the bulk of this movie stupid, sophomoric, and tasteless. And the English dubbing is so horrendously atrocious, it seems that we are listening to the soundtrack from another movie. So how funny can sex be? Pretty funny, I guess, but you’ll never learn from this turkey of a movie. Veteran director Dino Risi (of IL SORPASSO fame) directed. He has done much better.
