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

Wow, suprised me
27 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I went to the premiere for this movie expecting a normal indy film, however i was happily suprised when it was well acted, well written, and well directed. Most indy films i see usually are strong in only one of those categories. This movie really seemed like the group meshed well together. It was much better then that other no-sex on a bet movie that is out right now. If this gets launched in your area please go see it, it should refresh you. And if it doesn't hit your area complain to someone, anyone.
