Hollywood’s response to the sexual revolution is quite aptly captured in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. As wife swapping and swinging had migrated to middle America by the late sixties, the film attempts to chronicle one adventurous couple’s attempt to convert their slightly more conventional friends replete with a host of hippie-era tropes about self-fulfullment and free love. Though nowhere near as racy or titillating as some of the erotic films of the time, B&C&T&A is an excellent and pointed criticism of some of the more far flung ideas being posited by the new “sexually liberated” generation.
