Storyline

Meet Ralph, charismatic New York adman about town. Encouraged by his sexist boss and unlucky-in-love buddy Peter, Ralph's life revolves around the pursuit of the opposite sex. Enter his match, smart and beautiful account executive Elizabeth, who is put off by his sex-obsessed ways, convincing Ralph to see a therapist. Just when a relationship between the two begins to flourish, Ralph gets thrown together with supermodel Amber. Now Ralph has to decide whether to change his player-like ways or risk losing the one woman he truly loves. Written by Anonymous

Unnecessary crap
17 January 2003 | by (Bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is also known as "Giving it up", and in Norway as "No sex 4U". It is the most shallow and unnecessary piece of crap I have seen since - I don't know when. The plot is a cliche, it's utterly unrealistic and a thinner story hardly exists. In fact - there WAS no story. The predictability rate was sky high, and the acting was terrible. One of the rare 1/10 rates. Stay clear of this one!
