"Sex alleviates tension and love causes it."

A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is a 1982 sex comedy film written, directed by and starring Woody Allen. The film was produced during the post-production of Zelig, as a way to pass the time before the latter film was completed.

In the early 1900s, Professor Leopold (José Ferrer), a distinguished philosopher, and his fiancée Ariel (Mia Farrow), visit Leopold's cousin Adrian (Mary Steenburgen), and her crackpot inventor husband Andrew (Allen) on the countryside. They are joined by doctor Maxwell (Tony Roberts) and his girlfriend and nurse, Dulcy (Julie Hagerty). Over the course of the weekend, a series of wacky romantic encounters results from the reunion of the three couples.
