World Cup Season 2: 3rd place match - Sex comedy, yes or no?

I figured I'd leave it up to you guys as to whether I should pick a sex comedy for Spain in the upcoming 3rd place match or if I should go for something more highbrow. So, which shall it be?

Countdown

I, umm... appreciate how persistent your trolling can be.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Can't we have both?? Why don't you pick a highbrow sex comedy?

I have nothing against it, but better be a good one.

But since I doubt there's good one, I voted no.

That can be arranged. However, I fear our American prudes here might find it all a bit too much...

As it stands now it seems I'll have to pick a sex comedy. However, that alternative only enjoys a slim one-vote advantage so if you absolutely don't want to watch a sex comedy, please make sure your vote is heard. Conversely, those who do enjoy some racy bedshit action with an arthouse flavour should also take care to vote. This poll will remain open till this Sunday.

Do it now because you will hardly find an opportunity as good as this one.

You do have a point. Btw, I am slightly puzzled that you, as manager of the premier sex comedy country, did not go with one earlier in the tournament. I even supplied you with a most excellent list to make it easier for you. Oh, well, maybe you'll man up in the next Cup?

Well, so far 8 people have voiced their utter distaste for celluloid hanky-panky - I'm expecting that number to rise as more Americans check this thread...

Oh, because victory would have been too easy. And, yep, I should start thinking about next cup...

I voted either. How many of the forum's Americans actively participate, and which ones would you consider prudish?

You should go with a Sub-Saharan country next as that region has many exciting cinematic treasures awaiting your sponsorship...

So you voted in favour? I've already decided on which film to go with but I'll let Joachim do the reveal. I'll say this though: expect a sexy time with an intellectual twist. Here's hoping tommy has decided on his nom too so the match can get under way.

No. The sexy time stuff, however, goes on indoors.
