Reviewers barked that this erstwhile sex satire attempted (unsuccessfully) to emulate the fervid taboo-breaking style of Pedro Almodóvar, but they may have been disappointed because of their fondness for the director's comedy commentary on Italian television, none of which appears in this film, the first for director Roberto D'Agostino. In the story, four young women, all of them with some connection to the entertainment industry, are attempting or being made to attempt to sleep their way to improved career opportunities. Pretty Alessia's mother and aunt are stage-struck and have shoved her into a sexual relationship with a producer, hoping that he will cast her in something, it doesn't matter what. Well-endowed Stefania has previously starred in soft-porn films and is scheming to get a role in a film which doesn't revolve around her having simulated sex all the time: the filmmaker she is wooing generally makes cheesy "B"-grade action films. Amalia is a star in the daytime soaps but she thinks the Chief Executive for the network she works for might be persuaded to have her cast in a more prestigious evening show if she puts the make on him. Even Beatrice, who appears to be free from such ambitions, has a plan and a man.
