Four hip women get ready for Friday night in LA: they dress, talk about sex, and hit a bar before meeting four men at a rave. The men prepare by talking about sex and drinking. Rick and Jean, two attorneys, have set up the evening, connect at the club, and have a good time. The pairings of Shawn, Trent, Whitney and Emma are more serendipitous. But it's Mike and Sara's night that has serious repercussions: he's an NFL player, loud, swaggering; she's a party animal who drinks a lot early that evening. At 4 AM, she appears at Jean's, disheveled and bruised, saying Mike raped her. Arrested, he says he's innocent, and in flashbacks we see both sides of the story. Written by
this movie tries too hard to be thought provoking and edgy. i thought it sucked. it's like they put issues in this movie, just so they could say that they covered them. the acting is terrible, and they seem to show tons of unnecessary and tasteless nudity to make up for it. the idea could've worked, except the movie wasn't thought out completely and they tried to pack too much into one movie.
