Captain Pantaleon Pantoja, an outstanding, exemplary, happily married army man, is commissioned to organize The Visitors Service, an ambulatory prostitute system created to placate the sexual needs of soldiers assigned to distant posts in the Amazon Jungle.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Francisco de Lombardi fills his sensual film with plenty of gorgeous shots of the lush landscape and its equally exotic, miniskirted 'fauna.'"
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"Promises to skewer sexual politics but instead turns out to be a one-joke pony."
‑ Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News
"Francisco Lombardi's film is a bit long, but upholds comedy and jungle sensuality on a very amusing tripod."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"Pantaleon y las Visitadoras, which has three distinct acts, each of which works as a self-contained little film, runs a whopping 138 minutes. But it remains enjoyable, even as it grows darker."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"This film might've fared better if those involved realized how fiercely their material begs for a plunge into the deep end."
‑ Nick Rutigliano, Village Voice
"Wears one down with a long running time and diminishing returns on its wicked premise."
‑ David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter
"Sex comedy has a fun premise, but is surprisingly neither very sexy nor funny."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"For a long time, the moive gets by on kooky, erotic charm."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A pedestrian film that provides little more than a superficial treat."
‑ Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
"Goofy but enjoyable."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"Del Solar's performance as the quintessential company man gives the film an unexpected poignancy: Neither a rebel nor a conscienceless drone, he's a man who knows his limitations and tries to do his best within them."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This may not seem to be the stuff of comedy, but a comedy it is, and a compelling one too, laden with hot sex and standout performances,"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
