The story of the Boss and the Maid. While the Maid does her duties with more or less clothes on, the Boss enjoys the view with his hand firmly on his crotch.

Our thoughts:
Took me a while to review this one as I was waiting till I had a blu-ray player of my own. This short film comes on a bonus disc with Cult Epics' "Monamour" blu-ray (a highly recommended purchase for perverts). "Kick the Cock" was also produced by Nico B. from Cult Epics, so it's especially fun to watch this film by the old pervert, Mr. Brass (and yes, this film and its extras clearifies that Tinto Brass is indeed the pervert we already knew he was).

No real plot, just an old man played by Tinto Brass, staring like a dog at his nearly nude maid played by Angelita Franco. It's done in two segments - one with him in his chair, centered in the kitchen, staring at her while she rumbles about by the counter and more often than not showing off her butt. Tinto Brass, or the Boss, begins to touch himself. It cuts to the next segment, which I think is a fantasy but I'm not entirely sure. Here Tinto Brass is outside of the kitchen (and house), looking in at his maid while she uses vegetables and fruit to pleasure herself. No more, no less. It's Tinto Brass looking at a beautiful, nude woman. The way it's been for all of these years, I guess, just with less story.

"Kick the Cock" is, quite frankly, not much. Angelita Franco is gorgeous, and I think it's great that she also wrote the short film. But out of the ordinary happens so you are literally just looking at her (and for most of the time it's just her butt). That said, the disc comes with a making featurette. Now, putting these two together and you've got something worthy of a watch. The making of might not blow any minds (or loads), but it's just a small glimpse into the making of erotica with one of the giant directors - and a very beautiful woman who is more than a little excited to be making a short film. In fact, she often regards to herself and Tinto as perverts. With a smile on her face. It's all done with a smile, really, and this short and making of are to be seen for fun. The making of doesn't dive into the depths of filmmaking madness, but neither should it.

I think fans of Tinto Brass should check this out - I especially encourage people to buy the "Monamour" blu-ray as I consider that a great erotic film (it's pretty darn sexy). So getting "Kick the Cock" and the featurette on a bonus disc is definitely worth it. You probably won't get it any other way. So check it out for the simplicity and joy of erotica, and for that lovely Angelita Franco.

Positive things:
- Angelita Franco!
- Together with the making of featurette it's quite a fun disc.
- Tinto Brass is a horn dog. I mean, in the nicest way.
- It's on a bonus disc.
Negative things:
- The short itself is oh-so basic.
