Cabdriver Paul (Kent-Arne Dahlgren) is shagging three girls at the moment, his girlfriend Mary-Anne (Solveig Andersson), his girlfriend's sister Beryl (Gunilla Larsson), and nude model Eva (Christina Lindberg), the girlfriend of his friend Peter (Leif Ahrle).

Especially Eva is a bit of a trouble child, she hardly ever has any money, eventually becomes a nude model and later gets an assignement as a stripper at a company party. She also locks her out one night, wearing nothing but a blanket, and when she meets a kind elderly gentleman who offers her his guestroom to spend the night, she doesn't know that he's also a sadist who eventually attacks her with a whiplash. Somehow she makes a getaway and steals a fur coat from the sadist house's in the process (after all, she had to wear something). Soon, she finds herself followed, and Peter finds out why: the furcoat Beryl has stolen is lined with bags of cocaine and worth a fortune.

At the company party she is supposed to strip she finds she is already expected by the guy who owns the furcoat, but she makes a getaway, and ultimately, she, Peter, Paul, Mary-Anne and Eva all move into a house in the country to set up a trap for the guy who's after the furcoat, then tie him into a blanket, drop him off somewhere in town next to his heap of cocaine, then call the police and drive off ...


What a silly and at the same time boring movie!

Basically, this film is based on a script that seems to be absolutely directionless, that seems at times to be a social drama, a comedy, a thriller, a softcore sex romp, but never even attempts to be coherent in any way. worse is the plot itself that seems to lead nowhere in particular for the longest time, then ends on a rather random note. And as for the direction: It's bland for the most part, but gets utterly confusing in the comedic finale, so much so that one stops to care after some time.

What remains is the film's main selling point, the girls, and yeah, all three female leads are lovely and get naked on various occasions. If that's enough for you, than this film is for you, but still be warned, the film isn't even funny or endearing from a nostalgic point of view ...
