Not so much a sex-comedy but rather a comedy about sex education (suitable even for maiden aunts and dopey uncles). Three generations of one family gather to celebrate the matriarch’s 74th birthday. It’s a normal family gathering with barbs, laughs and arguments. But everything changes when Betty’s middle-aged son, Brian announces he has a new method of explaining sex to his younger son Peter who is absent. The others listen to Brian’s method and are amused or horrified or both. So Brian challenges his elderly parents, his wife and his son and his son’s girlfriend to do better. They try with some amazing results.
