“Fifteen is the perfect age. Just think: you’re giving him private lessons — an advanced education!”
A sexy maid (Sylvia Kristel) is forced by her unscrupulous co-worker (Howard Hesseman) to seduce the wealthy teenage boy (Eric Brown) they both work for.
This dated, unfunny sex comedy features awful acting, a distasteful plot, and genuinely few redeeming qualities. Sylvia Kristel — best known as the title character in 1974’s soft-core cult hit Emmanuelle — is sexy but stilted, while Eric Brown as the unbelievably naive teen she seduces (one reviewer describes him as “a 15-year-old boy going on 11”) is instantly forgettable. The flimsy storyline (involving blackmail and a faked death) is merely an implausible excuse for “titillating” scenes of reverse-Lolita seductions — somewhat shocking only because Brown was actually underage during filming (Kristel used a body double). Watch 1983’s Risky Business for a much more enjoyable variation on the same theme.
Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

No; skip this clunker.
