Daniel J. Travanti,
Three young women come together in college and quickly determine that one has never had an orgasm, they quickly decide that they are going to make sure she has one (thus the not too subtle film title). The three then set out a sexual adventures. One takes up with a popular, arrogant boy who is of course more interested in his own pleasure than hers. Waiting in the wings is a sensitive outsider, who everyone immediately knows is the one who will float her boat. Written by

Although some of it was a little shoddy (like the ending, and the eventual fate of the two best friends) it was in general quite good.
The point a lot of people miss is that this is EXACTLY how teenage girls from that particular demographic talk and act. They're not articulate, they're pretentious, they waffle on about things they couldn't possibly understand, they're very shallow and they're deeply insecure drama queens. It was actually like being back at school again for me.
Ryan Reynolds also looks like my husband...so I found him pretty sexy (especially singing).
I agree that some of the casting would have been more appropriate if the actors were closer to their characters' ages, and that better editing would have tightened it all up, but it was a nice popcorn movie.
Think of Liv Tyler's character in "Empire Records", this is a movie about girls like that- neurotic, pressurised, rich kids.
It's not going to resonate with everyone, but some of us will actually manage to identify with the whole thing, and then it's really, really funny.
