She's 19 and Ready (also known as Sunnyboy und Sugarbaby) is a 1979 German sex comedy film.


The story centers on a rather uninhibited young woman named Eva (Sabine Wollin) and her two boyfriends - Stefan (Ekkehardt Belle) and Claus (Claus Obalski). Eva needs to decide which of the two is to be her "steady". While pondering that question, Eva inherits some overseas properties from a rich uncle. The three of them embark on a world tour to exotic places, meeting up with Eva's cousin Britta (Gina Janssen) along the way. At the film's conclusion, Eva's "choice" is to keep both young men as beaus.



The film's music soundtrack contained original songs by Gerhard Heinz and also includes the contemporary European hits, "You're the Greatest Lover" by Luv' over the opening credits, "Dschinghis Khan" in a dance club performed by the band themselves and "Slip Away Susie" by Bernie Paul in a music video style sequence during a guest appearance by Bernie himself.


The film received a good deal of airplay in the early 1980s on HBO and other cable TV pay channels which sought R-rated programming not available on regular TV.
