Just when a relationship between the two begins to flourish, Ralph gets thrown together with supermodel Amber.

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!
