Synopsis

A 1971 sex comedy revolving around two trickster roommates, Raymond and Rosaire, their homosexual maid Môman, and their girlfriends. This ‘bare’ plot – composed of quite disconnected sexploitation scenes - ultimately leads to the protagonists’ marriage and return to normalcy. Capitalizing on Fournier’s previous hit Deux Femmes en or (1970), The Master Cats is a low-brow farce that explores the connections between masculinity, humour, and the erotic using stereotype and cliché to comic effect in a way that might not pass today.
