Storyline

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.

Bad movie
13 April 2003 | by See all my reviews



I will admit I didn't finish watching this film, so perhaps the last 20 minutes were brilliant and I tragically missed something wonderful by changing the channel. But I rather doubt it and, to be honest, I can happily live the rest of my life without knowing.

The plot is dull, the acting is bad, the script tries way too hard to "say something" (about what? men and women? sex? the fact that people have sex? and it's often bad? well, fancy that!), the directing is typical metteurs en scene fare, the overall premise is uninteresting (and un-funny), the characters are generally unappealing (the men are idiots, the women sexually agressive 'Sex In The City' rejects. Eg: Man offers woman a ride, woman offers man blow-job as a "thank you", turns out woman is a prostitute, man gets busted by cops mid-fellatio. Oops. Eg2: Group of women go for a "girls night out" at a strip club. They drink margaritas and one of them gets on the dancefloor to indulge her secret longtime fantasy of being an erotic dancer. Profound stuff, huh?)

Gets very talky once they all get to the club. (Nobody says anything insightful, but they seem to think they do.) Tries to be 'Swingers' and fails miserably.

When things like this get the production go-head it really makes you wonder what kind of scripts actually get *rejected* in Hollywood...

Weak. Don't waste your time or money on it.
