Woody Allen's most strangest film.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex was a strange film from Woody Allen.  Loosely based upon a book on sex, Allen skewers the source material and takes chapters from it and turns it into a comedy omnibus.  Seven tales (Woody Allen appears in four) dealing with such subjects about sodomy, transvestites, love potions, etc.. are dealt in a very humorous and tongue-in-cheek comedy.  I really enjoyed the film's strange humor and Woody Allen's in top form.  John Carradine is a hoot as a mad scientist who takes his research a tad too far.  Lynn Redgrave is hot and funny as the Queen that the court jester (Allen) who falls in love with her and tries to use an aphrodisiac on.  The film also parodies Italian new wave cinema, kinescoped television shows and science fiction films (Fantastic Voyage),  If you want to see a film that's very unique then I suggest you check out this one.

Highly recommended.
