Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex *but were afraid to ask
1972
Questions from Dr. David Reuben's once-controversial book of the same name are turned into seven silly Woody Allen-penned vignettes. They feature Allen as a cowardly sperm, Gene Wilder as a man who falls head-over-hooves in love with a sheep named Daisy, John Carradine as a scientist who creates a 50-foot-tall breast, and Regis Philbin guessing the strange sexual habits of game-show contestants.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This early and very funny Woody Allen comedy may seem tame by today's wild norms for obscene material, but that also gives it an aura of gentle concern for its oddball protagonists. Even when they're being humiliated, the film is only celebrating the quirks that make them human. It's refreshing to learn that a 25-year-old film that once explored perversion can now make us feel good about being normal. Well, except for the sheep-fucking.
