Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

What in God's name happened here?
9 August 2000 | by (Westport, Ct.) – See all my reviews

What a weird movie!! This movie is Swingers for its first half and then abruptly turns into The Accused for the second half, and you're left scratching your head. I was really into in for the first half, maybe because I'm a big fan of Swingers. Ron Livington's Trent (Vince Vaughn's name in Swingers, coincidentally) is flat-out hilarious, and steals the show whenever he's onscreen. There are lots of funny, insightful moments until the movie takes a deadly turn into the maudlin. An alleged rape occurs, and we see it happen from both characters' point-of-view. But since neither character is particularly sympathetic or appealing, we don't really care whose telling the truth or not. Jerry O'Connell's Michael is a mindless, jock moron while Tara Reid's Sara is a naive tease. So who cares about the outcome? And then the movie tries to throw in a few jokes during all this melodrama which really fall flat. If the movie had continued in the vein of the first half, we might have really had something here. As it is, though, it's a mess.
