Broken into seven well-executed vignettes, four of which star Woody Allen, the film is brimful of side-splitting humor. Each sketch is derived from one of Dr. Reuben's questions about sex.

Yes. Of course, I fully realize that this "Woody Allen" picture is, in fact, a wacky sex-farce... And, yes, it did contain some genuinely funny moments....

But, with that said - If I were an alien-being visiting this planet and if I were to watch this movie (not knowing exactly what human sex was all about), I would honestly think that this much-lauded act called "sex" was undoubtedly one of the stupidest things in this world. I really would.

In other words - If you are someone who has heard about sex, but you are completely clueless about it all - This movie will leave you even more clueless about it than you already are. I'm not kidding.

Apparently at the absolute top of his game (as director/writer/actor of comedy) when this picture was first released in 1972 - I had never realized just how disappointing a "Woody Allen" picture could be until I viewed this flaccid, impotent offering of his.

I mean, this movie doesn't even come close to being a celebration of the humour of sex, at all. No way. This is nothing more than a childish gloating over the utter stupidity of sex.... What more can I say?

The SPL Catalog description, "Broken into seven vignettes that humorously answer questions raised in Dr. Rueben's book about sex" is seriously far-fetched, ha hah. The book & movie title's notwithstanding, there is only the most thread-bare connection between the book and the film.
I recall one reviewer, at the time the film was released in movie theatres, stating the film set sex education back into the Stone Age, ha hah hah. That's far more apt than the SPL description. Some of the vignettes are over-the-top but all are funny and entertaining. At least one, starring Gene Wilder and a sheep, is to-this-day a thematically unmatched "trend-setter" of American movie history.
