Where I come from this is called 'Outrageous Party'
6 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A normal Aussie couple throw a swingin' party their whole neighbourhood attends, and havoc ensues. Meanwhile, hubby is trying to impress his bosses at work enough to give him a promotion, and his ungrateful missus is having fantasies about a stripper she had a chance encounter with. What will happen as the evening unfolds?!

Filled with all the bad vibrator, blow-up doll and oral sex gags you could possibly want (or not) to hear, this is an abysmal comedy that is thankfully very rare. Don't bother to track it down, unless your masochistic tendencies get the better of you. Believe me, this is a hell of a lot more painful than cutting yourself with a razor blade.. 0/10
