A strictly monogamous man stops to help a stranded female with a broken down car. In gratitude she offers oral sex, when he reluctantly accepts. However, just as they get involved, the cops arrive and it turns out that the woman is a known prostitute. The man is arrested and is forced to call his wife at 3 AM to bail him out. A few days later he is evicted from his home by his wife. His best friends question how he could have been so naive. Meanwhile his wife and her friends plan their own night out with full sexual plans. Meanwhile the men decide that an apology is at hand. Arriving home, instead of his wife, he finds his mother-in-law. Eventually the guys, girls, and mom all end up together in a night club that brings all the events to a head.

1 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie shown in 2007 on free to air TV here and viewed by myself while googling and jpeg stealing. It did the trick for me, i thought it was a 7 I got a couple of really good laughs and the story was consistent.Good characters. Possibly if you try to take this movie too seriously then you just don't get it. Could this movie become a black comedy classic in years to come? I was intrigued by the chefs surprise and the whole music thing was real good ...I thought the soundtrack was fine, in fact i wanted all of the main characters to be my friends, you know, i'd be hangin out with em and stuff and that the whole movie was one big tongue in cheek giggle for 90mins or so.Some of those Jinks club scenes were almost tiltshift and i think there's maybe a touch of Friends in there also the way they're all sharing their secrets as they're getting drunker. I am certainly glad i happened to see it. As for there being a few that didn't like it i can understand that. Tell me the truth you guys, you didn't like Hudson Hawk either right?
