Despite an interesting premise and some laughs, this movie is just the ultimate of sleaze
24 October 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Joe and Candy Johnson are climbing the social ladder in NYC. Candy is doing most of the pushing, as she fudged Joe's resume to land him a great job in an architectural firm. But, Candy now wants Joe to be a partner. It's no wonder. She spends money like nobody's business and has them firmly in deep debt. Nevertheless, Candy tells Joe's boss two things at a dinner. One, she and her husband are going on an African safari. And, two, Joe will tell the company about his great money-saving toilet idea when they get back. The truth is, the couple are going to the Catskills and Joe's commode idea is not yet finished. But, on the way to their vacation, they remember leaving key evidence of their true vacation destination in full sight. The couple head back home to their posh apartment, knowing everyone in the building has keys and may be coming into their place. Everyone indeed, from Russian mobsters, clandestine couples, their daughter and her boyfriend, and more. They become trapped in their apartment's closets and bathrooms, as more and more people use their place for a meeting ground. Can they get out alive and well and still have Joe land his dream job? This movie has great concepts and some laughs, yes. Some will find the film right up their alley. But, this viewer found it to be too sleazy for broad recommendation. The actors are indeed wonderful and funny but the situations they are thrown in are oversexed and distasteful, at times. If anyone wants to take a chance on the film, just beware. You will find yourself laughing but some parts may leave you a bit disgusted as well.
