Storyline

From the Greek play Lysistrata to the Greek system on US campuses, Manfast draws from a broad range of influences to deliver edgy humor and contemporary commentary. The story follows four hard-partying, post-feminist, self-labelled "manaholics" who live in the affectionately-named "House of Babes" in Tallahasseee, and publish a struggling zine titled Biotch. While famous for their festive ways, the babes wonder if there is more to life and love. Their chance to find out comes in the form of a grad student friend who needs a household of women to study for her MA thesis. Her proposition? She'll pass on her grant money to them to save Biotch, if they'll abstain from contact with men for 100 days. With trepidation, the babes take up the challenge. As the local media takes note, and the group's men start to grow restless, one babe's father ups the ante. He announces on a national talk show that he'll grant $1,000,000 to the first man to break the fast. Hoardes of men descend on the small ... Written by Vesco

I loved it!
13 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought it was funny and very entertaining. The performances were not over-acted which I find can be the case in films such as this one, where the cast is so young. Overall, I felt the film was well-done. Everything flowed together very well. The film had a message (relating to women and their attitudes towards sex as well as the emphasis men place on sex, etc) without being at all preachy; with indie films, in particular, I often walk away feeling like the movie's message was shoved down my throat or that the director was just trying too hard to be weird, "trippy", etc. all at the expense of making a good film. Not the case here. I've recommended this film to many. It's definitely a great date movie and just a lot of fun. I hope to see more from this director and the cast members in the near future.
