Synopsis: A middle aged writer of pornographic novels meets and falls in love with a sixteen year old school girl. This alone is cause for concern but when the couple get married and move to America, the trouble (and fun) really begins.

Reaction: A bit odd, but there are quite a few humorous moments.
