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
Brooke Shields -- in a departure from her "Suddenly Susan" duties -- plays a bitter divorcee who embroils three girlfriends in a "girls only" weekend in Palm Springs. The problem: Brooke is "unattached" and on the prowl, while her friends are all involved. Hence the title implications and emotional backlash their "amoral" weekend causes.
Despite a few laughs generated by Dan Cortese ("Victoria's Closet") and MTV "relationship authorities" Adam Corolla and Dr. Drew Pinsky, this is somber stuff for women only. D.B. Sweeney, Virginia Madsen and Jon Polito co-star.
