When Russ Meyer ushered in the age of the nudie-cuties with The Immoral Mr. Teas, he chose to employ a parody of Jacques Tati's popular "Mr. Hulot" comedies. Not to let a good idea pass him by, exploitation master Herschell Gordon Lewis copied that formula here with an hour of comic blackouts featuring Billy Falbo (Living Venus) as "Lucky Pierre," whose wordless misadventures always seem to involve nude ladies. Segments include "Pardon My Pigment," "The Plumber's Friend," "For the Birds," "The Photographer's Apprentice," and "Drive-In Me Crazy." On the whole, the film has extremely annoying music and photography which is often unflattering despite the vivid Mary Poppins-type colors. It's innocuous fun, though, and at least manages to be occasionally amusing, unlike most of the tedious nudie-cuties of the time.
