Melvin, Son of Alvin is a 1984 Australian comedy film. It is a sequel to Alvin Purple. It was released under the title "Foreplay" in the United States.
A TV reporter is doing an article on the sexiest man on Earth. She tracks down Alvin Purple and discovers he has a son, Melvin, who is similarly irresistible to women. However Melvin is scared of women, and is a virgin.
Melvin begins a relationship with a young Greek-Australian girl, Gloria, whose mother is very protective of her. The TV reporter reunites Melvin with his father, who is performing as a night club singer and is the leader of a cult called the Purple People.
