(ru) wrote: A smart and refreshing romantic comedy with a twist. It tackles the issue creatively, tastefully and with a large amount of humour. Easy going viewing and one you could easily watch again.

(gb) wrote: I can't believe that more people haven't seen this little gem from 1984. A decent storyline with a strong cast and good sountrack. It's funny, it's serious, and it's a little crazy. An interesting mix of comedy and drama.

(ru) wrote: This horrible sex comedy has an unintentionally hilarious first half, as a relentlessly bouncy score pounds into the viewer's head with nagging tastelessness. Imagine a jaunty romp like Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual" weaving in and out of a film for a half hour -- you either tear your hair out or just start laughing at the absurdity. "They come from here, they come from there/No matter where they may come from, they're always welcome everywhere...AU PAIR! With swinging hips and swinging hair, they add a dream to the swinging scene every fellow needs to share...AU PAIR!" Unfortunately, the film turns much duller once it settles down -- particularly a dreary subplot about the seduction of a rich, pampered innocent. The other three au-pair tales are only a smidge more engaging, but fear not -- in the end, the girls come together to be whisked away for a lifetime as a sheik's mindless sex slaves. Hooray for happy endings! Streamable on Netflix (as if anyone could be bothered to rent the DVD of something like this).

(nl) wrote: Lundgren and Bellman share good tension,If anyone deserves credit for the reasonably successful aspects of this film, it is director Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, Highlander II). It??s Mulcahy??s stylishly dark tones that create much of the suspense. He makes the most of the single half-constructed building where much of the action takes place.
