Set in New York, 'Whipped' is about a group of three single men, buddies from college, whom meet every Sunday at their local diner hangout to discuss their favorite sport: scoring with women. Their conversations (always revealing, sometimes revolting, and occasionally riotous) revolve around the weekend past and the girls that these three egotistical and narcissistic swingers were able or unable to "scam." However, when all three single guys unknowingly go after the same "perfect" woman, Mia (Amanda Peet), they begin to question their skirt-chasing ways. Squabbling breaks out amongst the group as they compete for her attention and suddenly, the fate of their ritual and their friendships, becomes uncertain. Who will win the morning round table bragging rights? You'll be surprised. Written by

I think we have all met guys like these before. Gusy that think they can conquer whoever they want whenever they want. One has an ego the size of an elephant because he has money, the other thinks that his niche is the fact that he hangs out in coffee houses and reads Nitzche and then the other is actually a nice guy but he is influenced by his friends. These are the kind of guys that will pick up a woman, have sex with her and then forget about her. It doesn't matter that she may be heart broken and devastated, all that matters is that the boys had a good time and got what they wanted. But what happens when a woman comes along that has a similar agenda on her mind? What happens, is you get a smart, hilarious and insightful comedy called Whipped.
Whipped is full of smart insights into the single male and the married male. It starts off with four highschool buddies that meet every weekend for breakfast to discuss their whoring ways. Everyone is single except for Eric who has been married for several years. I think that even though he is played strictly for laughs, there may be more truth to his character than I know seeing as I am not married yet. But he is one of the funnier elements of the film. He likes to hang out with the boys because he vicariously lives through them and their exploits. He would never cheat on his wife, he loves her, however, it is good to hear about the thrill of the hunt.
Brad, Zeke and Jonathin are the other three friends in question and the three of them all fall for the same woman, Mia, played by Amanda Peet. She meets all of them in conspicuously suspicious circumstances but they never seem to realize that fact. Zeke ( the artsy type ) meets her at his fave coffee house. Jonathin meets her outside a magazine store where he buys his porno mags and Brad meets her at a club where he likes to strut his stuff. All three fall hard for her but she tells them that she likes all of them equally and she can't decide who she wants to date exclusively, so she wants them all. Since they all like her so much, they all agree to this. Complications ensue.
Amanda Peet plays Mia as a soft, kind hearted woman. You really believe that she is in love with all three of these guys and that she really can't make up her mind. You have empathy for her and you can accept her plight. Two of the three guys are pigs and you hope that she doesn't end up with them but then at the same time Jonathin is just as scheming as they are so it is hard to route for him. But when the payoff hits you, it comes at you with a comic force that is refreshing. I have read reviews in here that have chastised the film for what it tries to say, but I admire it. I don't think I have seen a film that does what this film does and says what it says so confidently. The comeuppance that the three receive is justice to all the jerks that have perpetrated guys like this before. I think women will laugh at this film and most guys should like it as well. I'm not sure why it is getting all the bad publicity but when I saw it with my fiance, she liked it just as much as I did.
This is a funny, honest look at dating and revenge and it is very enjoyable. The denouement is perfect, with every character. Even Eric, the married man has a funny story about his time with Mia. She is, after all, irresistible.
9 out of 10-- This is a very funny film and if you like Amanda Peet, this is one film that highlights her talents as an actress. Don't listen to what anyone else says about the film, judge for yourself. This is a very funny film.
