Five 1990s Californian couples, wed but one, illustrate or contradict the sexual relationship theories of two TV talk show hosts. The women shamelessly presume all men, including theirs, to be unfaithful, yet embank on a girls-only trip to LA, which turns orgiastic to the point of adultery. Back home, loyalty and other complications arise, whether to tell the cuckolded partners or protect one's own buddies. Written by
If this is what happens after sex', heaven help us!
Usually when I review any film, good or bad, I like to comment on why I have the feelings I do. But in the case of this film I truly cannot be bothered. This film lacks good direction, has lame acting, a terrible script and starts to be become laughable and in poor taste. It also shows that the actors and actresses really have chosen a project that will bring a quick end to their careers. I am talking of people such as Brooke Shields (Suddenly Susan), Virginia Madison (from the great romantic comedy Electric Dreams') and D.B. Sweeney, so on and so on.
So my rating for the film?
CMRS gives About Sex': 0.5 ( - Bad Film)
Why? Well quarter of that rating goes to the entire cast, crew and behind the scenes people for turning up for a few weeks and putting on a movie, albeit a disgraceful one. The other quarter, goes to the best parts of the movie, that of the two men talking in what looks like a psychologist's office. I have plenty of experience in such a place, and a lot of what these guys say makes plenty of sense. It is a shame the other parts of the film did not add up.
Enough has been said already. Please beware. This is a film that you will most likely hate, with a vengeance, because I know I do.
