Fanny Hill (Shirley Corrigan) feels neglected by her husband,
photographer Roger (Peter Bonke), who crowds himself with beautiful models
all day long, so she asks her best friend Monica (Gaby Fuchs) to seduce
him to have a reason to divorce him. The plan works like a charm, and that
Roger actually had another girl hidden in his wardrobe while shagging
Monica was only the icing on the cake.
Freshly divorced, Fanny - with
Monica - goes to Hollywood, to become a sexmovie actress in no time at
all. Roger follows her to Hollywood, the two have make-up sex ... and then
Fanny flies off to Hong Kong for more filmwork. On set, she falls in love
with her director (Bo Brundin), and Roger, who has come after her again,
almost catches her in bed with him.
In Venice, Fanny falls in love with
a gay marquis, so she dresses up as a boy to get him into bed - and when
he realizes she's not the man he thought her to be, it's much too late to
In Munich, Fanny reunites with Roger, where he invites her
and Monica to an orgy ... where he gets arrested, and Fanny has to make
use of all of her female charms to get him out again.
Fanny now wants to
get back together with Roger again, and Monica figures the only way this
can be done is by having him catch her with a handful of lovers hidden in
her wardrobe (?). For some reason, the whole thing ends with a (literal)
pie in the face.
Fan fave Christina Lindberg makes a few short (but
nude) appearances as one of Roger's models.
Around the World
with Fanny Hill is a pretty pointless sex comedy. Sure, it's rather
well-photographed, does feature exotic locations, some of the acting is
decent, and there are hints of satire and irony ... but the whole thing
just refuses to fall together, despite the film's best efforts it remains
a rather shallow erotic flick that's not especially funny, especially when
it tries to be.
That said, there are quite a few worse sex comedies out
there ... but quite a few of those are actually a whole deal funnier than Around
the World with Fanny Hill - if for all the wrong reasons.
